Extremity Games is organized by Athletes with Disabilities Network (ADN), whose mission is to promote a better quality of life by creating opportunities for athletes with physical disabilities.
ADN organizes Extremity Games, as well as Athletes with Disabilities Hall of Fame®, which recognizes and honors men and women who have overcome physical challenges to become elite athletes and superior role models.
We have a couple of Extremity Games updates. First, we are very excited to have Extremity Games Motocross be a part of the new Adaptive MX Championship Series. Extremity Games will kick-off the 3 Round Championship series, which will partner with existing events at some of the best tracks around the country. This series will have three adaptive classes to separate the different physical impairments to allow a level playing field for riders.
Extremity Games Main Event is officially canceled for 2015. We have been blessed to host EXG Main for nearly a decade, however, funding has grown increasingly more difficult to secure. At this point it seems both fair and realistic to share with our EXG friends and family that this event is on hold. Please know that we are stoked to have clinics spawned from the format of EXG many run by friends and supporters of Extremity Games running nationwide and in a variety of adventure sports, which allows the next generation of adaptive athletes to get to the next level.
Over the years Extremity Games has helped to forge lasting relationships, new events, clinics and organizations. Myself, Eric Robinson, Tracii Haynes, Brandon Holiday, Jim Wazny, Sheila Qualls, Todd Salley, David Frost, Kim Les, Stephanie Wallace, Rory Willing, Dave Dawson, Mike Wilson and so many more others have put blood, sweat and even a few tears into creating this event. Our entire Board of Directors has supported Extremity Games and would like to thank all of the sponsors, athletes and volunteers over the years for their dedication and commitment to EXG.
On a personal note, I have decided to take a step back and have resigned as Executive Director of Athletes with Disabilities Network. It has been a huge pleasure working with all of you. It’s heartbreaking to close this chapter of my life. I definitely plan to still be involved to some degree, but feel now is the time to pursue other opportunities that align with the path that my family life and career have taken at this point.
Please continue to share your competitive spirit with others. Celebrate and support athletes in our adaptive community! Please stay in touch with ADN and celebrate your accomplishments; as well as those of other athletes in our community.
Thank you again for your continued support of Athletes with Disabilities Network and Extremity Games. You have truly helped to show that There’s No Replacement for the Competitive Spirit™.
Motocross Champions Crowned at 9th Annual Extremity Games
Rochester Hills, MI (June 6, 2014) Celebrating its 9th year, Extremity Games joined together adaptive athletes on a national stage on May 24, 2014. Competing on what is arguably one of the toughest tracks in the Midwest, Baja Acres Motocross Park of Millington, Michigan hosted the event as part of their Memorial Day Weekend where champions were crowned in three categories: AMP Lower Extremity, AMP - Upper Extremity and Para (seated).
Organized by Athletes with Disabilities Network, Extremity Games provides athletes living with amputations and/or spinal cord injuries a venue where they can compete peer-to-peer, limb-loss to limb-loss on an equal playing field.
Returning Extremity Games Champions Max Gomez from New Rochelle, New York, Drake Smeltz from Westfield, PA each went 1-1 in the Amp Lower and Amp Upper class. Jesse Gildea from Van Wert, Iowa rounded out the gold medalists in the Para class.
"Extremity Games is a great thing," said Max Gomez. "These guys don't get enough credit for the things they do. Riding with all your body parts is difficult as it is but to have missing ones and still be able to perform on a bike is incredible."
Hello everyone - Thank you for your support of Extremity Games. We have been working to reach out to our sponsors and athletes about Extremity Games. As some of you have already heard, Extremity Games Main Event has been postponed this year. Extremity Games Motocross was this past weekend on May 24 and the Main Event will return in June 2015. We have been honored to host Extremity Games now for nine years. During this time, the Games were held in three states and hosted nearly 1,000 athletes from ten countries.
To continue our success of the Main Event, the Athletes with Disabilities Network (ADN) board of directors have decided to refocus the event on Extremity Games 10, which will take place in 2015. This will give us a great opportunity to garner our ability to make the 2015 Extremity Games a marquee event for our 10 year celebration.
