Truly inspirational, HIM as well. The guys on IMTalk were talking about him recently, apparently he can change tyres using his feet, and watching the vid and how he does his shoes, I can see how. Makes me feel completely useless.

Very inspiring, nothing but admiration for Hector.

What a bloke and under 7 1/2 hours. Amazing.

I'm pretty sure in his situation I'd be at home feeling sorry for myself everyday.

Pretty humbling really.

I felt frustrated for him with the shoes and all the stuff I just take for granted.

I agree pretty humbling stuff!

His transition times are just as fast as mine!!!!!

He's faster over a middle than I was with Ewan!!

I'm shit :lol:

Great story and bloody heroic - what an attitude. Legend :D
