It has been an incredibly sad couple of weeks since I last posted. Mike Hall, perhaps the greatest endurance cyclist in the world, was killed while riding in the Indian Pacific Wheel Race across Australia. He will be remembered as a humble and passionate man who loved what he did, gave openly to others, often dominating some of the toughest endurance races in the world. In the early hours of the morning, nearing the end of the race, he was in collision with a car, ending his life. It is not the place of this blog to speculate on causes, but just to remember this quiet man for what he had made himself into, an awesome competitor. We are all Inspired to Ride by your effort, passion and determination. Rest in peace Mike. You will be sorely missed.
