My good friend AC just looped me in on a recovery fund for his fellow Velotech crew member Mat Barton. Mat suffered an accident on June 11th during the Portland Short Track single-speed bicycle race that has left him paralyzed from the waist down. There has been a good deal of support flowing in, but Mat can use all of our assistance right now. A recovery fund has been set up for donations here, and you can follow his progress on Mat's journal.
For any fellow industry folks, Velotech is holding a silent auction next week, so it's not to late to float some gear there way. You can contact velotech directly or send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
