Rooted in New Zealand – The Keegan Wright Story – Video

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

Keegan Wright is a 24 year-old professional mountain biker. He’s known for his style, speed and energy, both on and off the bike. And he looks every bit like a natural athlete. But it hasn’t always been this way.

Keegan was born with talipes, a congenital developmental disorder of the feet and ankles that makes walking difficult orimpossible; less than ideal for pedaling a bicycle. This is the story of how Keegan defied the odds to become one of the world’s fastest mountain bike racers.
