This is Steve. We met about 10 or 12 years ago on a group ride. This progressed to racing against each other in time trials. We were pretty close in our times so it was always fun to see who was fastest at a particular race. This competition went on for a few years until he had to quit riding due to a back injury.
One of my favorite memories of Steve was showing up at a group ride and we were the only ones there (that should have been a good clue). About 15 miles into the ride black clouds appeared and quickly moved over us. Rain and high winds followed us all the way back into town. I miss riding with him.
