  1. So sorry to hear. Steve was a great guy and did a lot for the sport of off road riding. I remember an awesome ride with him in southern Jersey that showed me what single track was and how much fun we had. “Keep swinging kid” will always be my memory of him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
