Unfortunatly when we were on our way to the hospital he passed away. Cole was a great guy and a good rider. He was only 23 years old and god bless him and his family. We will def. miss him up at cycle gear for his jokes and his attitude. He did a track day with me a few months ago for his very first one. He couldn't wait to get back out on the track and possible get a trackbike. Well he is where its safer now and he won't have to worry about situations like this. God bless him.

To all you other riders be safe, you never know when something might happen

A guy I work with knows the guy that pulled out in front of him. The guy was driving an F-150. We were at the crash site last night and there were no skid marks or anything. Cole was a very skilled rider and he must have had no time to react what so ever. The speed limit where it happened was 50 mph so we will see what happens on the law side of this story as well.

Thanks for the kind words guys
