I had a wonderful talk with Shannon Bahrke-Happe today about that, about professional racing, and life afterward. Shannon was on the US Ski Team for 12 years. During that time, she brought home a silver and a bronze medal. She also won the Overall World Cup title in 2003, had seven World Cup victories, 26 World Cup podiums and her list of wins goes on from there. She is a mom, founder of Team Empower Hour and the author of a children’s book Mommy Why Is Your Hair Pink?

His death rocked the bike community, and support poured in from around the globe.
