A fundraiser in honor of a rider who died at Sea Otter is being held in conjunction with the CCCX Downhill Race Series this season. Mark A. Reynolds crashed while competing in the downhill race during the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California, in April. The 48 year-old was the owner of Wicked Racin and innovator of the Dualrailluer Guide for which is in process of being patented as the first dual chain ring guide.
Members of the Evomo Mountain Bike Team stepped forward to organize the memorial fund raiser in Reynolds' name. "I feel it's the right thing to do and I really feel for the family who had to hear such terrible news," said Tom Judy, Evomo Downhill Team Member.
Reynolds' family hopes to contribute to a freeride or jump park that will be named after Mark - thereby continuing his legacy of supporting the sport. A raffle will be held at the CCCX Downhill Race Series race on Sunday, June 22 at Toro Park near Monterey. Products for the raffle have been donated by Fox Racing Shox, Evomo, X-Fusion, Pactimo, Stan's No Tubes, Cool Cycling Club, Calabazas Cyclery, Trailhead Cyclery, and Auburn Bike Works.
