Garrison Hayes, Boys D2 Freshman, Highlands Ranch Composite, is a huge motivator to the sport. As a young boy he lost his leg and has chosen to focus on goals, with the use of one leg and a prosthetic leg. “On Saturday I pre-rode the course and one lap was close to 2.5 hours to finish. I made a goal for me, for my win to be on Sunday, to finish one lap in 1.5 hours. I’ve done it! I accomplished it. It is about being confident and being familiar with the course and the changes in the weather”. Garrison completed his lap in an impressive 1:16.35.
