Press Release –
Boss Racing is pleased to announce its participation in the WXG14 inaugural Adapted Snocross feature with athlete Travis Gravelle of Anchorage, Alaska.
After casing a 110′ moto jump in 1989, Travis Gravelle suffered a serious injury to his leg which resulted in 14 surgeries, years of physical therapy and an eventual amputation below the knee in 2001.
Despite the recommendation of his doctors, Gravelle insisted on the amputation, which has since allowed him to return to the extreme sports arena and shoot hardcore ride video in the Alaskan backcountry.
“The entire team is thrilled to compete in this inaugural full medal event and we are honored to be a part of the movement to show the world the capabilities of adaptive athletes” – Garry Querel
Gravelle will join 2008 silver medalist Brett Turcotte as part of the BOSS program; please tune to ESPN and ABC next weekend to watch us compete for gold!
