I know a lot of people on these lists know James Gist…..mountain biker, husband, father, former prez of CRC. Back in 2008-2009 he patented the 2×4 scoring system still used today. I think he gets about $5/yr in royalties because we are too cheap to pay him.
Not much has changed in over 10yrs….Dave Tevedale is still slower than Kyle Rodland (see attached), CAMCBC still grills for local races and maintains awesome trails. except bikes are lighter/more expensive and James has some serious life long medical issues he is confronting while trying to be a husband and father.
What to do? Greater minds than me came up with some ideas to fund raise for the Gist family:
1) Race on St Patricks day!: https://www.bikereg.com/
100% of the proceeds are going to the Gist family
2) There will be a fundraiser jar next to the keg. Drop some cash in there.
