Yesterday, Austin Crenshaw, 37, was killed in a collision with a car while out on a group ride with his friends.

The large group was riding near Larch Mountain in Oregon, an area well-known to cyclists for its challenging climbs. On one of the descents, Crenshaw was unable to maintain control of his bicycle around one of the curves, and swerved into the far lane into an oncoming car. The driver stopped as soon as they could, and rendered assistance while 911 was called.

The paramedics arrived soon after but were unable to revive him.

Crenshaw raced OBRA cyclocross, and focused on the Singlespeed category for the last two years after racing in the Division A Category.

Our condolences go out to his friends and family.
