This is a pretty crazy story. Racer Steven Cisar ended up a heroin addict for a time after he took a heavy crash which left him out of the Olympics. He managed to turn things around the hard way. An inspiring and well produced piece here, good luck to the lad.
“Steven Cisar started out in Motocross as a child, later into his teens he focused on BMX racing full time and quickly became a known name on the circuit picking up good sponsorships. In 2008 he got 2nd at The BMX World Championships and was on the USA Olympic trials team. The Olympic trials race took place just before the 2008 Beijing Olympics. This would be a race that would define his career, if he did well he would have been selected to represent USA at The Olympics, unfortunately Steven crashed out which meant he wasn’t selected.”
