Where Kait's strength was restored Kait Boyle is an ultra-cyclist from Victor, Idaho. Just two months a er winning a world championship title, she was involved in a horrific car accident that ruptured her bladder, quadruple fractured the pelvis, and fractured her sacrum and fibula. Kait was unsure if she could race competitively again. She underwent surgery to implant two permanent pins and an eternal fixator to stabilize her pelvis and hold her bones in proper position, and "wore" this external metal device for twelve weeks. A er two years of diligent physical therapy, Kait returned to her true love, racing the iconic 137-mile long Kokopelli Trail. In her first major race since the accident, Kait broke the previous record for fastest female cyclist!
