Utah memorial ride honours Allan Butler

Over 400 riders came out in support of the Allan Butler Memorial Ride last Saturday in Salt Lake City, Utah, to honour the American who was killed while crossing 'the Strip' in Las Vegas on Thursday, September 29, during the Interbike trade show.

The event was well covered in the local media with articles in the paper and repeated stories on evening news programs. Local professionals Dave Zabriskie and Burke Swindlehurst personally escorted Butler's mother, Tammy, up the canyon to the summit where the hundreds of cyclists that came out waited, applauding her and the rest of Allan's family as they crested. Butler's Logan Race Club's Healthy Choice-Goble Knee Clinic team-mate, Marc Yap, had the honour of riding to the summit with Allan's widow Jenny Butler on a tandem.
