It is with a heavy, sad heart that I bring the news of Tricia Shadell (aka Tricia Boardman, Trishia Leigh, TriciaPants, Tricia Princess Consuela, etc) passing away. She committed suicide last night.

Some of you would know Tricia from when she lived in the YOSAR site in the 90's, when she was a teenager. She was more recently living in Durango and an active enduro mountain biker and coach, who traveled the west for competitions, expos and clinics.

I am sorry to be the bringer of bad news. When I find out anything about a memorial for her, I'll post it.

Damn. She could ride. And beautiful too.

Very sad about this. She had much to offer. I think she was doing coaching of MTB girls’ teams.

What a sad loss. Our mountain sports provide a refuge for people on the edge, but sometimes they aren't enough. Condolences.
