It is with great sadness we share that John Egbers, the Trans America Race Across America cyclist Jeff met and photographed on June 14, succumbed to the injuries he suffered when he was hit by a car that same day near Scott City, Kansas. John fought valiantly to recover from a host of terrible injuries. His heart stopped on July 5. His wife, Susan, kept a Caring Bridge blog on John's fight to recover from his catastrophic injuries. In reporting the news of his passing, she said "Wherever his next ride takes him, we find comfort in knowing he is pedaling his ass off."
