    Yes. I have known Dick for 25 years back when he was at Sportsman Cycles in Vegas. I wouldn't say we are friends or the like but definitely a good guy. I hate to hear news like this.

    Very sad. He was a talented racer and seemed like a nice kid.

    D36 retired his number over the weekend. I did not know him personally, but my bikes suspension was done by his father when he was still in the sacramento area.
