Bobby McMullen has survived diabetes, loss of his vision, kidney failure, years of dialysis and two kidney/pancreas transplants. He has broken more bones than he can count. In spite of challenges that would take most people out, Bobby lives life full-on. He is a passionate extreme sport competitor - a tenacious adrenaline junkie who competes alongside fully able racers.

Bobby has spent seven years as a member of the U.S. Team, was a two-time U.S. Disabled Overall Downhill champion, and earned his spot on the Nagano Paralympics ski team, taking fifth place in the Alpine downhill ski competition.

But after complications from his second double transplant surgery he renewed his love for bikes. He was competitive in 23 mountain bike races in the year following his second transplant surgery, and has not slowed down since. He works with a "ride guide" who rides ahead of him and calls out obstacles. Since 2004, Bobby has raced in at least 25 downhill, cross-country, and 8- and 12-hour mountain bike events each year.
