Banasiewicz speaks about his recovery

For the very first time since his near death accident, we are hearing from Brett Banasiewicz in his own words.

Doctors told him it would take two years for a full recovery but Brett says that's not the case.

"I am showing the doctors how it is done.  I was walking at 3 months said my first words at three months and sure not going to take me two years to come back," said Banasiewicz in a statement.

"Please don't ask if I will ever ride again because I know if there is anyone who can do this it will be me. I just can't say when that will happen but i am telling you it will."

Brett was injured in a nasty fall during a BMX competition in August. He suffered bleeding to the brain and says he even died on the way to the hospital.
