This guy............Jerry Flores, passed away a few days ago.
When we moved back to Utah in 1982 to Draper, Jerry was our neighbor, he was really into BMX, after my brother & I got our bikes and gear, all 3 of us spent a season racing. He quit after a crash or something like that & after a few years we lost touch with each other but what GREAT memories, it's a very sad day in the Ritter household. RIP my friend.
