Its simple. Trek had a LOI. This is usually not legally binding (despite what they say). Gwin knows his time in the limelight is likely limited so he's making the most of it. What gives? If his performance dropped or we hit a major economic downturn Trek would drop...more

Rider error plain and simple. This is not a legitimate lawsuit. Kim would be embarrassed as competitive people have the integrity of risk awareness/mitigation and responsibility for their own actions. It was his choice to approach this personal challenge.

A sad story for sure and my condolences to anyone who knew Kim... but seriously how did this lawsuit even get this far?! I have things that 'encourage me to speed' like 'Wolf Mother' and 'Pabst'. I'm totally suing them after I get too stoked one afternoon and crash.
