F ck Cancer Up Fundraiser - Evil Wreckoning

To thank all those that contributed to the cause, a grand prize was drawn at random. The winner of the Custom Evil Wreckoning is Nicholas DiRienzo and this was his reaction when asked about why he supported and where he intends to ride his new bike:

bigquotesHow stoked am I? I'm literally shaking right now I'm so excited. I've never won anything in my life!

I donated for a variety of reasons. Sure, winning the bike would be great, but really it's more that I like to be able to donate to smaller charities that really put their money towards fruitful goals. YSC is for sure one of those.

What does f'ing up cancer mean to mean? I think it's much more than just seeking out a cure... It's also about providing support, education, and motivation to all those affected. It's about hitting all aspects of cancer from before it starts all the way up and through a cure.

Has it affected my family? Honestly, I've been extremely lucky in that my family has not had many battles with cancer. But, even now I'm getting a bit older (only 33), and I'm having friends and colleagues who are the same age and dealing with cancer. It's so freaking sad seeing all these people have this hurdle thrown at them. Still, it motivates me to be there for my friends and family in their times of need. It also stresses why groups such as the YSC are critical, as young people can and very much do get cancer.

I currently live in Tucson, Arizona, home to some of the gnarliest trails in the states. An Evil Wreckoning will be more than at home here on Mount Lemmon!

 As a man who was diagnosed two days before my 22nd birthday I can say with full honesty Cancer does not care about your age. That said 4 chemo rounds, 5 surgeries later and I'm officially one month Cancer free.

F*ck Cancer.

 My bro has just been through a similar round of treatment to you and is now in full regression, so I've seen up close what you would have gone through and how difficult it is to come out the other side. All I can say is that you and anyone else who has had this experience and managed to fight back is a f*cking legend! Massive respect dude!

 I lost my left nut to cancer 5 years ago and have been cancer free ever since. On the plus side, mountain biking is 50% more comfortable! Optimism was my best friend during those dark times. Stay strong people!

 Thank you Pinkbike and FCancerUp! And of course thanks to Evil, Shimano, Envy, Fox and WTB for the amazing donation. More than happy to donate to the YSC! I'm still in shock, but seeing it on Pinkbike is making it a bit more real. Can't wait to send it down La Milagrosa! Oh, and I'm for sure keeping it pink!

 @AmericaIsRed: lots of big talk from a guy who's been here for 9 days.

Your PB comment history shows exactly the type of user that should be banned and blocked from online communities. Do you just spread hatred and bigotry and incompetence in all facets of your life?
