Mike Janelle

Sadly and completely unexpectedly our fellow friend and racer Mike Janelle suffered a heart attack and died in his sleep last night. Brian and I feel privileged to have had some of Mike rub off on us during our time riding and racing with him. His attitude, zest for life and personality made him the best kind of person to be around. All my thoughts of him make me smile, whether its the tall tales of $80 dollars worth of McDonald's reviving him during a latter day in the RAAM, the smile he had at 3am in the morning, the visual of his SLR saddle and aluminium hard tail that he rocked mercilessly over the roughest terrain, or the utmost respect we have for his love of life. Rest in peace Mike you will be sorely missed.
A fund is being set up by Janelle's team-mates and friends to support his wife Maribel and their unborn baby. More information will be available at when details are finalized.
