My Name is Cody Gilmore, Im 19 years old, and I'm from Spencer, Iowa. I have been Racing for 13 years, and rode with Team Green for 7 years. In 2006 I had an unscheduled pit stop, I was diagnosed with a rare teenage cancer called Ewings Sarcoma. I was treated at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN while undergoing surgery, Chemotherapy, and Radiation. My last Chemo treatment was at the End of May 2007. Since my diagnosis I have learned how to walk again and not only that but get back on my bike and start racing again. I've been given a clean bill of health and every 3 months I go back for check ups. October 7 was my first race back in 2 years. Im looking forward to getting back into racing throughout the winter and next season. Along with my racing I am still currently putting on my Riding Schools which seem to be a big hit in the midwest.
My plans for next season is to continue getting healthy and staying healthy. Im going to be getting back into things, while racing many local and regional events. My plan is to go back to Lorettas and score a top 5 finish. Im going to try my hardest everywhere I go. I want to make my sponsors look good as they try to help me through my career. With the help of your company and my other sponsors, I can get the best equipment out there and work towards the top, bringing your company with me.
