Matt Trujillo, we will miss you.

Our friend Matt Trujillo died tonight. He spent the last week and a half in a coma, fighting for his life, after being hit by a car while riding his bike.
I don't really know what else to say. It's tragic, and horrible. The accident was the result of a young woman running a red light. This should never have happened, Matt should be here with us now, stoked to be riding his brand new mountain bike this weekend. Instead, his frame sits there on the wall, never built, and his family and loved ones are left heart broken, most likely suffering through the worst night of their lives.
This really sucks.
Please be careful out there everybody, when you are driving and when you are riding.  Just a brief moment of distraction and it can all go so horribly wrong so quickly.
We'll miss you Matt.

  3. Go Bless Matt that he now rides with the wings of an angel and with the grace of his attendant spirit. That we will all miss him her on earth but be reminded of him each night the stars appear...
