This morning has been a whirlwind of emotions. Trying to fight back tears and sadness, while simultaneously laughing at some of the adventures and stories. Kelly was an amazing person and I'm fortunate enough to have known him for a number of years.

One of the Kelly memories that came up this morning was from 2011 at the US open. To make a story short, we were done for the day and heading back to the hotel. The area Raleigh rep's wife, was hanging out with us and told Kelly she had a big growler waiting for Kelly back at the hotel. The look of shock and confusion on the big guys face will never be forgotten. It took a few more minutes before we found out that the only definition of a growler that Kelly knew was a euphemism for lady parts!

Kelly, you were one of a kind and won't ever understand how many people you've inspired through your life. Cheers Bruh, I hope you're in a better place and the memories never be forgotten.

2 of the best photographers in the country covering the event is our investment. placement on the homepage has little relevance with how many people see an article and it has since been bumped back up with full results available. if you had links and info on results, send them on or leave them in the comments. we'll add them to the articles as needed. it's a TEAM effort out there for all of us and that includes you helping out to make our sport great by providing information you have.

gravity pirates, where you there?

if so you would have been aware at the complete lack of organization throughout the event and the lack of cell phone and internet service at the venue, etc.

photos of results were posted to Vital before any news his USAC website. As of 6 pm last night they had yet to post proper results on site. USAC may have had them for their own updates but they did not share, and there was ZERO regard given to getting this info to the media.

There are lots of photos and interviews coming, have some patience. It will be better coverage than you will find anywhere on the internet. The event ran hours behind schedule, we all have long drives home, then have photos to process, audio files to sort and cations to write to tell a story... This does not simply just happen immediately, it takes time and HARD WORK.

I fail to see how Vital or any media outlet can should accept any responsibility for the poor turnout. The state of USAC sanctioned races, their poor product, and poor turnout are the sole fault of USAC.

"It's legal, you're not ticking people off, you can ride it anywhere" He's obviously ignorant of the multi use trail drama the MTB community deals with.
