The concern for the fate of our club-member Luca Biwer amazing. More than 100.000 people has used our media channels to get information about it. Many friends and other clubs have spontaneously commited their help for Luca.

What happened?

Luca is a great Enduro Rider, wearing the BIKE AID jersey in also in the Enduro World Cup. During a training ride for his last preparations to a race in France he crashed very badly after a jump broke his cervical spine what subsequently damaged his spinal cord.

Due to this crash and injuries, he suffers a quadriplegia and his ability to move is more than doubtful.

Luca does not like to stand in the spot light

He really doesn’t like when things are turning around him. But together with his family, we share the opinion that we have to try all to raise awareness for this bad incident and and try also to help all together, as Luca’s family will probably be faced with high cost in the future.

High cost

The medical care of a quadriplegic patient will cost many million Euro. Unfortunately, not all cost will be covered by health insurance, also he will not be able to get any pension as he is still very young.

House and appartment hast o be modified fort he needs of disabled person and also nursing care at home has to be employed. The list of financial impacts could be continued.

It is not surprising that most oft he patients are reliant to charities or donations to maintain their cost. That ist he reason why BIKE AID founded „mouving for Luca“ – we want to help – together!
