Looking Back

Submitted by Jason Ashmore

I realized recently that I’ve been mountain biking for 10 years and it’s become a huge part of who I am.

In looking back, I realize Scud has been a constant positive force in my life since the day I started riding. He has been there as part of so many of my favorite cycling memories. Douthat camping trips, Catherine Furnace Rides, The Tour Of Hope, SM100, Alpine Gran Fondo, our Fruita trip  (below) and many many more.

I still remember the day Scud reached out called me to recruit me as the MORE ride coordinator. I’ve been involved with MORE volunteering behind the scenes ever since.

Scud has always been the type of guy that brings out the best in each of us. I can’t think of a more positive or generous human being than Scud. You simply will not find any individual who has done 1/2 as much for mountain bikers in our area…

Always greeting you with a smile and a handshake; or even a hug when you needed it. His kind words and hot Scudfries helped many a weary rider through a tough day on and even off the bike.
