A Northumberland motocross biker, who suffered a depressed skull fracture when he was flipped off his bike, is to complete an endurance challenge to raise funds for the air ambulance service which helped to save his life.
Robert Gibb was off-road biking when he hit a stone and was catapulted over the handle bars near to his home in Eachwick.
Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) airlifted him to Newcastle General Hospital where he spent 15 days having four plates fitted in his head following the accident in 2006.
Robert has now pledged his support to GNAAS by signing up for the Clif Bar Lake District 10 peak challenge.
The challenge is a non-stop run and hike over the ten highest peaks in Cumbria's Lake District. The course covers about 73 kilometres with more than 5,600 metres of ascent.
