Ingrid Doerr, founder of the early freeride brand Roach Clothing, has passed away.
Her clothing was legendary and helped popularize what became the freeride style. Before Roach, mountain bike clothing was mostly lycra—no baggies, not much armour, nothing durable. She also loomed large in the Vancouver bike courier scene, with innovative bags and technical clothing.
Many of us have fond memories of Ingrid, and our condolences go out to Ingrid's friends and family. We'll be digging around our garages to wear some Roach kit this weekend.
