RIP Carl... Pikes Peak Hill Climb

Today we lost another fellow 10r owner and racer.... Carl Sorenson. Carl was a genuinely good guy with the best intentions, one of those that just couldn't do wrong. Carl passed away today practicing for the weekends Pikes Peak Hill Climb

In 2012 I got a podium at Pikes Peak Internation Raceway and remember due to a complication, I wasn't going to get a trophy till the following week. I remember Carl speaking up (he is a part of the board member) and saying "C'mon this is his first trophy, let's get him the trophy now and let him enjoy the moment. You remember what it was like getting your first one?"

RIP Carl, you will be missed by so many......

Wow! RIP
I plan on riding up the mountain in a couple of weeks (not in a race obviously).

RIP Carl. Ride on.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

R.I.P. Carl

....and on my b-day no less...bummer man. Im sure he went giving it hell with one hand on the throttle though. Probably like most of us would want to. Id take that over a hospital bed any day. I'll raise a pint tonight for ya Carl.

We will all die but only a select few of us will ever truly live.
