Fellow Mountain Biker Gravely Injured

(The following Blog entry was left in hyperspace following our move to a new server - Originally dated 18july06)

While riding at Renaissance Park on Sunday, Bill Austin was gravely injured in a crash.  While details are sketchy at best, according to his wife, Susan Newsome, Bill is currently on life support as possible organ matches are sought.
 
Bill had recently joined the Trailblazers and Susan is active as a Dirt Diva and competitor in the Summer Mountain Bike Race Series.  
 
“He died doing what he loved -- riding his bike in the woods like a 10-year-old boy with his best pal”.  Susan was that pal and his wife of almost 3 months.  They were planning to honeymoon at Tsali next week.
 
Let’s keep Bill, Susan, and their families in our thoughts and prayers, not only now, but in the days, weeks and months to come.
