Laurence's son Ikal will lead out the event ride in honor of his dad
As many of you know by now, on May 17, 2021 Laurence Malone was killed in a tragic car accident while travelling home from Ojai to New Mexico. He left behind his beautiful 9-year-old son, Ikal, who lives with his mother Diana in Toluca Mexico. This sudden tragedy has been immense and overwhelming for both Diana and Ikal, and made even more difficult by the loss of Laurence's financial support. The annual Malone Memorial Ride is intended to both honor Laurence's brilliant and passionate cycling career and to generate financial support for Ikal as he matures into a young man. Our hope is that we can all contribute to Ikal's future through this annual fundraising effort. Thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the memorial ride on May 20th in Santa Cruz.
- Tim Rutledge, the creator of one of the earliest
mass-produced cyclocross bikes
“An American original, the Jack Kerouac of Cycling. A rebel who could think outside of the European mindset and revolutionize the sport. From bunny-hopping to fat tires, to bicycle design he was never afraid to be different in his approach to the sport. Laurence was able to see technology changes in the sport back in the 80s. He was way ahead, by 20 years, of what staid European cyclo-cross designers and racers thought. I learned so much from him in just the short time our lives interacted.”
