About Tara Llanes

On Saturday September 1, 2007, the BMX and mountain biking worlds suffered a tremendous tragedy while competing in the Jeep King of the Mountain finale in Beaver Creek Colorado. Tara Llanes, suffered a horrific crash during the first run of her semi-final heat. Following seven hours of surgery to the back and spinal cord, it was determined she had no feeling from the waist down. Tara has been a phenomenal competitor throughout her career, and a dear friend to everyone in the mountain biking community around the world.
