Not too long after this day we lost Shawn to a tragic accident when he was on his road bike. He was taken too soon and didn't get the chance to explore his new found love of mountain biking for very long. Shawn's last race was an Xterra triathlon and the joy on his face was contagious.

If you happen to be riding near me during this years Leadville trail 100 and I am whooping it up on a descent, join me in honoring Shawn's joy for life. He couldn't ride a descent without hollering a little. If you think you hear me talking to myself, just know that I am telling Shawn "dude, I'm not in over my head anymore, I've come up for air!"
Shawn and our good friend Tony
