Sebastian Bursig, born on 28 May 1976 in Tarnowitz, Poland, acquired his first brand new motorbike, a Suzuki GSXR 600 SRAD, in 1996, thus awakening his great passion and talent for motorised two-wheelers of all kinds. First, he completed his training as a motor vehicle mechatronics technician at Mercedes-Benz and worked there for 10 years.
Finally, Sebastian Bursig decided to realise his long-standing dream: his own motorbike workshop. Since then, Sebastian Bursig has successfully participated in various motorbike racing events, because it is the challenge that drives Sebastian to this day.
In March 2018, Sebastian Bursig suffered a serious, life-threatening blow that immediately turned his life around 180 degrees.
A man fights his way back. Sebastian Bursig led a full life full of passions and successes. An avid motorcyclist, he achieved great feats on the race track. In 2007, he was proudly crowned BMW Cup Champion, and seven years later he triumphed as Super Duke Battle Champion. His favourite race tracks were Oschersleben and the famous track in Assen, Netherlands. Besides motorcycling, Sebastian had numerous other hobbies such as hunting, lumberjacking, American football and off-road hard enduro riding. He was a man full of energy and enthusiasm for life.
But on 13 March 2018, his life was tragically turned upside down. A brain thrombosis hit him unexpectedly and changed everything. Sebastian Bursig was admitted to hospital with severe headaches and speech disorders. This was followed by an emergency operation, about two weeks in a coma and a fight for survival. It was uncertain whether he would win this battle at all, because at no time during these two weeks had he been outside a life-threatening condition. According to the doctors, if Sebastian Bursig survived, he would remain a nursing case – with no prospect of ever being able to lead a reasonably independent life again.
After he woke up from the coma, Sebastian had to face the serious consequences of the stroke of fate. He could not speak, his right leg and arm were paralysed, and he had difficulties with basic skills such as seeing, writing, reading and calculating. He even had to relearn how to breathe and swallow. The world he knew seemed a distant memory.
Despite these profound changes and setbacks, Sebastian did not give up. Together with his family, friends, doctors and therapists, he fought for his life back with an unshakeable will.
Rehab stays, therapies and operations followed to regain his abilities and strength. During this difficult time, depressive phases, aggression and sadness also set in. He found it difficult to walk and communication was very difficult. Writing, reading and arithmetic remained an unattainable challenge.
Despite everything, Sebastian kept the memories of his former life, his successes as a motorcyclist and his passions. But to this day, the question of “why me?” remains. He had never had any major health problems and had been an active man.
Nevertheless, Sebastian does not let himself be dissuaded today from his dream of being able to read, write and calculate again. He also has the wish to ride a motorbike again one day. He remains in therapeutic treatment and is determined to continue improving his skills and to fight his way back into life step by step.
In the midst of this difficult road to recovery, Sebastian remained proud of his family and team. They had kept the business going during his long illness and given him courage and support. It is a great concern for him to drop by his company and take part in normal life again. These moments help Sebastian to come to terms with his past and give him the strength to wait patiently for his further recovery.
Fate had hit Sebastian Bursig hard, but his indomitable fighting spirit and determination continued to shine strong within him. Despite the profound changes and uncertainty about his future, he firmly believed that it was never too late to realise his dreams and enjoy life to the fullest.
