We are saddened to announce the loss of our dear friend, teammate,
co-conspirator, and colleague Christopher Cono (2/25/1965 - 5/27/2013).
The organizer of the Fortune 700 race series, a long-time employee of
Velo Pasadena, and a usual suspect on all the local group rides, Chris
was a true leader and advocate in the cycling community since the 1980s.
Week after week, Chris could be found
racing passionately and vigorously on the LA crit scene. He was a unique
character and great teammate who will be greatly missed by all of us.
Chris leaves behind a wife, Akiyo, and two sons.
