A Sad Day...

The adventure racing community has lost two well known racers this past week. You have seen the news stories by now and have heard about the 2 men that lost their lives near North Van last week in a tragic kayaking accident. I have just learned their names and suddenly realize that I knew them...Although I did not know them personally, I had met Denis many times at races over the past years and he is impossible to forget...constant joker, always laughing and stirring up the pot. He will surely be missed by everyone he met in the racing community. Such a tragic loss.
