September 27/10 15:55 pm - In Memory of Vaughn Marshall

Posted by Editoress on 09/27/10

Everyone's friend, Vaughn Marshall passed away peacefully in Victoria, B.C., Saturday evening at 9:30 pm., from a brain aneurysm.

Despite his challenges, he contributed greatly to the local cycling community, as a volunteer at many of the Victoria Cycling League races and Bazen Bay Time Trials, as well as the past 2 years as President of the Schwalbe Cycling team. 

When I first met Vaughn, at the Bastion Square Criterium in 1996 he wanted to race for our team, and at that time he enthused that he was able to ride "5 kilometers without a break!". Nevertheless, he began to ride with us and over the last 14 years he won 14 medals and 5 trophies, many in the individual and team time trials.

From his humble start as a rider he progressed through a devastating fractured femur this Spring which required major surgery, to the point where he completed the 122 kilometer Nanaimo to Victoria ride, including a climb over the Malahat Mountain August 15th. in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.

His boundless enthusiasm for all things cycling was contagious and his constant positivity was a ray of sunshine in all of our lives. He will be sadly and greatly missed by us all. The Schwalbe cycling Club invites all riders to join their team ride next Sunday at 9 am. at Francelli's to ride in memory of Vaughn.
