 Who would have thought that a crazy head of hair and that huge smile would have influenced so many people for the greater good. I didn't know him, but wish I did. Just one great human.

 To see Tippie losing it just shows the effect he'd had on everyone. Got me going just seeing him breaking down. His girlfriend was incredibly strong to keep it together like that, they had been together so long, I can't imagine what she must be going through.

 Yeah it's the first time I've seen Tippie show signs of cracking... That really is a sign of how huge Mc Garry's influence really was... I miss him so much!

 Keep an eye out on the Queenstown mountainbike club Facebook page. They may be available through QMTBC with all proceeds going to the Kelly Mcgarry memorial trust which has been set up to support trail advocacy, building and assist rider development within New Zealand.

Alternatively if you know somebody at crankworx they are available to buy there, again with all proceeds going to the trust.

 Just an idea, but stickers in the same theme would be rad! Would possibly make a good money raising scheme for the memorial trust too. I'd love to have 'McGazza' stuck to my bike, and I'm sure many others would too. In a way it would keep him riding forever.

 I'm hard pressed with uni projects right now, but I might be able to organise some tee/sticker designs to put on Red Bubble.
I'm not exactly how pricing works on there but I'll see if I can set up the funds raised to be sent directly to the trust fund mentioned above.

If anyone wants to message me with a design they'd like to see (other than the obvious), feel free to do so before the weekend and I'll try and get something done then Smile

 Was definitely a touchy event to watch. The amount of respect in the biking community is immense and I think people all over could learn from this approach in life.

 I had a dream about Kelly last night. We had just woken up, but there was one guy still sleeping on the floor by a door. Suddenly the door falls off its hinges, straight on the guy, sleeping on the floor. I got real scared, Kelly just laughed his ass off. RIP bro :'(

 i remember following mcgarry years ago on the whistler redbull 5000 down kamikazi start on whistler peak. he double flatted on the section called in deep which is rooty as hell and it was a very wet day, and he kept pinning it . i followed him for a good minute or so until his tires fell off the rim. very impressed how he rode that stuff double flatted.

 I don't ride slope style or have never been to an event of that kind but I have watched many videos with Kelly in them. And I can say this, I know a genuinely humble guy when I see one and hear them speak. Kelly was truly one of those people. All I can remember from the videos were his big smile, big hair, and a big heart. He will truly be missed by all aspects of mountain biking.
