I received word early this morning that Dave Glasgow, legendary ultra rider and Super Randonneur, from Tucson, crashed about 3:30 a.m. on the Cochise County Cycling Classic course.
My friends John and Kathy are riding the new Cochise 243 mile course on their tandem--as I write this post. I phoned them about 7 a.m. this Saturday morning to check in on their progress--that's when Kathy told me about Dave's crash. They had come upon the ambulance and stopped. Kathy explained that Dave appeared to recognize John as Dave was going into the ambulance with the paramedics--which is good. I can't tell you how his injuries went, as J and K were still on the bike and in the race.
I'm not sure which hospital he may have been transported to at this time--Kathy thought Benson. Sorry everyone, but that's all the details I have at the moment.
You can see a link to John and Kathy riding Cochise a few years ago. I was crew for them and Dave was the Race Marshall. I've crewed for Dave on Cochise once before as well.
Here are some links about Cochise so you can see some about the race...
