Dave Klaassen Van Oorschot

Posted in Uncategorized on August 16, 2017 by Ridetothehills

Since breaking my back a few years ago and going though hell with starting and stopping pain killers, losing friends, being called a quitter, and the depression that follows not being able to ride after a life based on riding, I have to say something about the passing of KVO. He was and still is an unsung hero of the mountain bike community. I always thought he never got the credit of being one of the best American downhillers, not only nationally but in the world, especially during the span between Palmer and Gwin. He could hang with the Euros when no American could.  Always a hero of mine, he was an incredible athlete and I know he is riding in a better place.

Don’t believe how bad ass he was, check out these results…


(That’s Sam Hill and Colin Bailey who KVO is standing in between)


You should recognize one of the above names who David beat, not to mention when he beat both Atherton’s (which for all hell I can’t find pictures of), and if you are a true downhiller and know any history and have any respect for the mountain bikers who have paved the way, you should recognize a few more of those names and realize David K is and always will be A True American Badass! RIP KVO!
