Defying Gravity

When Lily Rice became the first person in Britain to land a wheelchair backflip, her life was transformed. Now she must overcome her greatest fear.

When Pembrokeshire teenager Lily Rice became the first person in Britain to land a wheelchair backflip, her life was transformed for ever. The clip went viral, and Lily was invited to be in a pop video and a multimillion-dollar promotion. Lily then became world champion of wheelchair motocross, an extraordinary new sport in which competitors flip, spin and ride their chairs over ramps and obstacles. But when an accident on a ramp causes Lily to have a crisis of confidence, only fellow competitors and her own courage can get her through. Lily is determined to overcome her block and attempt her trademark flip once again.
