Steve Tilford

I was sitting down at my desk to write the Wednesday edition this morn, Turned on the computer as heard Steve Tilford was killed in a car accident late last nite.

I’ve met Steve maybe 5 times total. Talked to him a few more.  He frequented the Cable\Hayward area having a lot of friends there. Ive sat next to him at Rivers Eatery in Cable.

Steve’s blog was pretty much the only one I read. He was a walking encyclopedia of bike racing. Always having a good story about some race 20 years ago. Steve and I were the same age.

Steves Blog here.

Many read his blog everyday and when you did you kind of got to know him.

I remember once when I was the race director of our local MTB race I almost got him to come to our event.

Anyway. Steve was larger than life in the cycling world and Im still in shock.
