Ride in Peace, Erica Greif

I only knew Erica Greif as one of many racers who flashed past me during this year's San Dimas Stage Race (though the one shown here was one of my favorites from Friday morning). From everything I have read the racing world has lost a talented competitor, and society has lost person with a big heart.

If you have not heard yet, Erica Greif, the 'Reno Rocket', was killed while driving from Reno, Nevada, where she took an exam at the University, and Redlands here in California, where she was to race with the Zoca p/b Halo Sports women's team in the Redlands Bicycle Classic. Rather than repeat what has already been reported, you can read this part of Erica's story at the VeloNews.

My thoughts are with Erica's loved ones, her family and friends.
