Still in shock . So many great rides and memories with Walt and his family. Walt and the "knuckle heads" as i liked to call us, had some of the most memorable and challenging rides together. Purgatory, 69 delight,area52/53,Moab and KM. Where ever we rode, Walt was always the life of the party. Walt was one of those guys that could always laugh at him self. And he offered up lots of opportunities for that with some great get offs and dirt naps! I remember one with him up at arrowhead where he ended up on his back with the bike on top of him, both wheels standing straight up skyward. He was laughing from the minute he realized he wasn't hurt. And so were the rest of us of course. Even Walt's handle "9 lives" had a whole similar story behind it.
Walt was a great dad and family man. And what a competitor. Specially with his sons on both the trail and the track. I always loved dicing it up with Walt on the trails as well whenever i got the chance. God i'll miss riding with him. There was literally never a dull moment when we all road together!
Ride in peace my brother! You will be soooooooooo missed!
