Hello All,

On July 4th, 2004, Alex "Grande" Ghenis fractured his neck in three places after landing a bicycle jump inproperly.

He was rushed to the Santa Clara Valley Hospital ER, and was later admitted into the ICU for the night.

Originally Grande could not feel anything below his neck. Over the next couple of months he regained some feeling in his arms, hands, neck, and head. He can also move his shoulders and extend his arms but can not move his fingers well. Alex is able to drive (he has a specialized van that enables him to get around.)

Alex is an incredible person and has kept his spirits up through this unfortunate event. Please help us support him by participating in the raffle. The raffle will be held at Gearhead Bicycles in Pacifica on June 25th. We will be gathering at the shop in the morning for a Montara/Mile/Crack/Boyscout ride. Following the ride will be a BBQ (lunch/raffle tix combo available).

Please buy as many tickets as you can to support a fallen rider... You do NOT have to be present at the raffle to win so even if you are not local, purchase tickets. You can buy raffle tickets on the website or in person if you are in the Walnut Creek, Antioch or Mountain View areas. Please PM me or post if you have any questions.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
