Kurt Yaeger

Amputee American pro Bmx rider / Hollywood actor Kurt Yaeger is touring in the UK this month and will be at Rampworx on Tuesday 24th September, due to the massive success of the music video “Waiting All Night” by the well know UK band, Rudimental. Topping the charts as number 1 for multiple weeks, the song was widely known as the hit of the summer 2013 in the UK. Kurt played a bmxer who was hit by a van while on his bmx and subsequently, his left leg was amputated below the knee. The story in the video highlights the struggle of his road to recovery and how his friends helped him recover, finally getting back on his bike. This video is so inspiring that its had almost 40 million views in only a few months.

Kurt, who is a full time actor in Hollywood, has also stared in the Tv show Sons of Anarchy as “Greg the Peg”, the film Dolphin Tale with Morgan Freeman, and a new Tv on HBO called Quarry. All these projects have been shown world wide so his fan base is growing rapidly.

With the help of Specialized, Ossur, CTi, Drift Innovation and Zeal BMX, he’s put together a two week “meet and greet” tour that we be filmed and documented for a eight part web-series. The aim is not just to ride bmx at some of the top skateparks in the UK but to visit hospitals and charities where children have lost limbs or have a terminal illness to bring inspiration into their lives. Kurt it so upbeat about the future, the children will see what Kurt has gone though and learn that there can be a bright and positive future ahead for them too.
