Paul Basagoitia

Athlete Bio

I was born and raised in this little town called Minden, Nevada. After high school I moved to Reno, NV which is the biggest little city in the world. A lot of people can't pronounce my last name so I go by "Paul Bas". I love enjoying the outdoors and hanging with good company. When I'm asked what MTB discipline I prefer I usually say anything thing that will put a smile on my face. I have achieved many victories in my career including winning Crankworxs two years in a row. On October 16 of 2015 I suffered a spinal cord injury. It's absolutely the hardest thing that I have ever faced in my life! Everyday I work my ass off to achieve my goals. I'm very blessed to be able to pedal a bike once again after being complete paralyzed from the waist down.
