For those of you who have raced the CCP or have had the good fortune
to have met and ridden with Don Person (aka Shiggy), you might be
interested to know that he was in a rather serious crash recently.
Basically, he hit a 24" tree at high speed, broke a rib and punctured
a lung. Don was riding alone at the time and fortunately was able to
walk down the trail 1/2 mile and get help from some buddies who were
doing trailwork.

I'm sure Don would appreciate emails and letters of encouragement.

driving a car is dangerous too and that doesn't stop you vanderchef.

Flying can be dangerous too and that doesn't stop you either.

according to this article. http://xrl.us/ow7w2 Being a lumberjack is
risky too...better be careful mikey...well. ok...not too careful.
