Cycling is Damian Lopez Alfonso’s life.  Since he was a young boy, he’s been riding the streets of Havana, Cuba – but not for fun.  Actually, he’s a fierce and competitive cyclist.

But Damien doesn’t look or ride like your average competitive racer. Damian is severely disfigured, with no arms and barely a face.

With the help of his American friends and fellow cyclists, he’s come to New York City undergo a series of reconstructive surgeries and to be fitted for prosthetics arms…  Medical treatments that ultimately make it possible for him to compete and qualify for the 2012 Para-Olympics in London.   A life-long dream of Damian’s.
