Help Coach Matt after his bad bike crash

As many of you know, on Saturday, Nov 9th, Coach Matt McNamara (my personal and our racing team coach) was descending the road out of Villa Montalvo in Saratoga and crashed heavily after hitting one of the final speed bumps.  He was transported to the trauma center at Valley Medical in San Jose where he spent almost 3 days in the ICU and another 3 days in trauma care.  He broke 11 ribs, 12 transverse processes (the little wing things off your spine/vertebrae) and punctured a lung and had to be intubated.

As you can imagine, his medical bills are mind boggling ($140K and growing) and Matt doesn't have the insurance to cover them.  Even after the typical 10 cents on a dollar negotiation that happens in these cases, he's going to owe quite a bit!

Matt is a great coach and is always giving back to the sport he loves: Early Bird Crit mentor, helping at talent ID camps, taking juniors to the Junior Tour of Ireland, ...

I hope you can help out.  Every dollar makes a difference!

Thanks in advance,
