Passing of Steve Tilford
The entire Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival is saddened by the recent news of Steve Tilford’s tragic death. He was more than a three time champion to us. He was a long-time friend, a frequent Cable community visitor, an advocate for clean racing and an all-around great guy to all who encountered him.
Steve was so much the real deal in so many ways. We, along with countless others, avidly read and absorbed his frequent blog postings that spoke of not just bicycle racing but many of life’s everyday experiences.
He will truly be missed but never forgotten. Our condolences go out to Trudi, the large group of Topeka, Kansas friends who we’ve gotten to know and to the legions of others who call him friend.
If you are looking for a motto to live by in your life “Ride like Steve Tilford” would be a great one to consider.
