Inspirational speakers to appear at 'Rally & Race of Hereos' in Floresville
FLORESVILLE -- Cycle Ranch is excited to announce that on Friday, June 20, Harold Glissen of “Only One Inspiration” will be delivering a motivational and inspirational speaking engagement in the pavilion of Cycle Ranch. In addition, “Monster” Mike Schultz and Doug Henry will also speak.
Glissen gated up against the best in the world at his first Pro Supercross race at the Daytona SX in 1998. This may not seem like much until you realize that Glissen was born without his left arm below the elbow. Glissen will be racing in the Adaptive Class that has been added to the racing lineup on Saturday night during the Rally & Race of Heroes.
Joining Glissen for the motivational and inspirational speaking will be five-time X Games gold medalist “Monster” Mike Schultz. Schultz himself is the developer and first person to wear the Moto Knee, as well as owner of BioAdapt Inc.
Cycle Ranch is also excited to announce that another speaker is one of those competitors who will be a true Motocross legend. He is a four-time champion who embodies the meaning of perseverance. Despite breaking his back, and then both arms on the same section of the same track, and having that section named after him, Doug Henry continues to pursue his passion of motorcycles and racing.
Henry overcame his severe injuries to race Supermoto. Even a crash that resulted in partial paralysis could not keep this champion -- this Legend -- from pursuing his dream of racing motorcycles. With a specially designed motocross bike sponsored by Monster Energy and Yamaha, he is an active competitor in Adaptive Class motocross racing and even snocross racing.
Others from the Adaptive Class lineup will be speaking, and those in attendance will have an opportunity to interact with 12 inspiring people. Attendees will hear their stories of perseverance, as told by them.
