Tragic news out of South Africa yesterday. Burry Stander, a 25 year old mountain biker was killed after being hit by a taxi. The two time Olympian and South African National Champion enjoyed a massive win at the World Cup in Windham. The victory was a break through for the ever-steady, ever-smiling Specialized rider, who capped his season by ending up just five seconds away from a podium at the World Championships.
Stander was just married this past summer. He will be missed by the cycling community, his teammates, his friends, family and those who cared for him most. Celebrate one of his greatest days with this interview after his Windham win.

IN MEMORY OF BURRY
In the case of my like, it is in sympathy for Burry’s wife, family, friends, and teammates/competitors.
