Anyone who toe’d the line with Guy Nethery knew he was a kind person. He would ask how you were doing and wish you luck on your race. He was always talking to someone, with a big, bright smile on his face. You’d bump elbows with him in a crit, cross race or on a ride and knew you were leaning into a stable man – the type of seasoned racer and rider you want by your side.

Much of that transferred to his daily life.

Guy was – first and foremost – a husband and father. He was proud of his three girls and he loved his wife with all his heart. Often on team rides we’d talk about our twins, what they were learning and how different they were from each another. In fact, we always talked about family and life, because that’s what interested Guy the most.

Guy wrote on his family blog in January 2013: "This motley group are my cycling teammates.  I feel lucky to be part of the group!  We all spent a long weekend in Leakey, TX enjoying some Texas Hill Country riding and good company. "

Last Saturday, after completing his race in Webberville, Guy succumbed to a medical episode and crashed his bike. He was in immediate care from an amazing group of racers and spectators who were highly trained in emergency response and saving lives. Unfortunately, Guy never recovered of breathed on his own through the care in the field, in the air and or at the hospital. People worked diligently for two hours, but it was not enough.

Saturday afternoon we lost Guy. He was 47. Mourning ensued and remains steady today. The feel of the crowd at Cyclocross Scuffle the next day was somber. Racers were hugging and some of us were crying, but all of us knew that we needed to race, because Guy would.

Two weeks previous he was awarded the embros BC Spirit Award for crashing twice on the first lap and being minutes behind the main group. In fact, I ran with him through the sand and heckled him by asking if he missed his start time. “Hell no,” he said, “I crashed, twice.” After the race he was very proud that he gained back several places, finished and was not DFL.

The cycling community has lost a great friend. His family lost a great source of inspiration and constant love. As we move forward, we will start to celebrate his life and try to live like him.

One of the members of the #TXCX community, Chris Chou, posted this on Saturday night and it couldn’t be more true:
“The next time you line up, take a moment and shake the hand of the racer next to you. Wish them a safe race and good legs.”

Guy would have.

Rest in peace, my brother. We love and miss you.
