    A great friend and riding buddy of mine, Justin suffered a cardiac arrest racing at last year’s Brighton Big Dog with life-changing consequences for him and his family (including the twin girls he only found out they were having days before).

    Please take a couple of moments to read his story and if you have a few pounds to spare for a fellow MTBer to help him on his road to recovery it would be massively appreciated!

    Shit. I only met Justin for a week in the alps but he is one of the nicest, funniest guys I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Remembering his antics on that holiday still bring a smile to my face. I remember him talking about wanting to be a dad, I hope he is able to become the dad he wanted to be.

    I’ll stick it on the OC Facebook (Hoops, DrP etc) and my Facebook, will make Sure Jimbo gets it round the whole community down here. We ride together when times are good, time to support each other when times are bad.

    Sheeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiitttt, donated, good luck with recovery – hope you manage to get him back on a bike. Know there are much more important things but sometimes the simple targets help everything else along.

    Good luck with it. Being a dad it makes you think

    Fingers crossed for a positive outcome, donation made.

    Donated and shared. By coincidence I had ablation for AF today and have a 2 year old at home, I must say reading this made me feel so lucky.
    Really hope it works out for him.
