Hey guys,

As many of you know, Paul B went down hard on his finals run on Friday. According to Zink and a few of the other guys, Paul has shattered his T12 and needed surgery. A few more details can be found here: http://www.tetongravity.com/story/bike/paul-basagoitia-shatters-t12-undergoes-9-hour-surgery

I haven't had a chance to contact Paul or his family, but a gofundme campaign has been set up in the meantime to hopefully help Paul out with some of the expenses. It is unknown, or at least hasn't been announced, what the bill will be and whether sponsors will chip in. Regardless, I think it would be cool if some of us could step up and send some love his way.

Here is a link to the campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/supportforPaulB

I know these can be a little sketchy, but all I can do is give you my word that all the funds will go straight to Paul B.
Even if you don't donate, please pass the message around and share the campaign.

Thanks guys!

Hayden

His family said to wait for them to do an official campaign, I think you should respect that!

Hayden,

Thanks for doing your best to help Paul and his family. I'm sure it's very much appreciated.

An official fund has been made through Road2Recovery: https://www.gofundme.com/supportforPaulB

If you need help contacting Paul's family to contribute the funds you were able to raise, don't hesitate to send me a message.

Cheers.
