Here's another lint to some pics. You can see how good he was...... and that had nothing to do with why everyone love him. The hoola hoop pics really show his zest for life.

Very sad story.. In the interest of mtb safety for all who read this board, what happened to Stiles Cummings that resulted in the loss of his life? maybe a future tragedy can be avoided.

We're not sure. He was camping in Yosimite and drifted off from camp. They found his body 2 weeks later (this past weekend). I heard ha fell in some rugged terrain but thats just a rumor.
