Cook, a Kelowna native lost the use of his legs in 2014 while attempting a world’s first double front flip on a motorcycle, that didn’t stop him from pursuing his passion. A year later he achieved the world’s first back flip on his motorcycle without the use of his legs at a Toronto Nitro Circus show. Now he tours the world with Nitro Circus and will be performing in his hometown.
