Kristy Gough

Kristy Gough was tragically killed this past weekend on a training ride in Northern California. You can read the specifics on here:

The photo above was taken in 2004 in Kona, Hawaii; probably 2.5 weeks before Kristy went on to be the Top Female Amateur in Kona. I met her at Epic Kona that year and trained with her (and others) for the three weeks preceding the race. I have not seen her since those three weeks, but I still remember her well. I remember her personality and character more than her athleticism, which is a great sign considering how accomplished she was athletically.

Rest in Peace Kristy.
