Kevin, A.K.A. “Hoss”, was an avid cyclist and cyclocross racer who passed away May 10, 2012 after a 6-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Kevin was devoted to encouraging and enabling youth access and participation in the sport of cycling.
Kevin's race team, Sound Solutions, in partnership with Steam Whistle Brewing and Midweek Cycling Club are working together to continue his efforts. All proceeds from the Hoss Cross Festival and the sale of “Hoss” merchandise will go to support 3 key youth cycling initiatives in Ontario.
