But his dream, along with the rest of his life, was completely shattered in 2007, when during a local race in South Africa he was hit by another biker and amongst other serious injuries he broke his back, crushing his spinal cord leaving him completely paralyzed from just below his chest.

The prognosis was he would never walk or feel his legs again.

Joey suddenly facing a daily struggle of keeping it together both physically and mentally made a decision, that he would not only still live a full life, but he would still chase his dream of racing the Dakar Rally.

The finish line of that race became the symbol of him beating his injury.
