RIP

Interestingly he's not even the most famous Utah person to die after a bicycle crash in recent years- Stephen Covey met the same fate

Terrible news.

I really enjoyed watching the Jazz in the late eighties / early nineties.

I remember him fondly.

Too early.

Shawn Bradley was recently left paralysed after being hit by a car riding his bicycle in Utah too.

The only thing more common than bicycle accidents in Utah is racist fans at Jazz games!
