Kelly McGarry was an incredible ambassador not only for Yakima and brands alike, but also for the sport of mountain biking. His incredible spirit and enthusiasm transcended what he was able to accomplish on his bike and inspired everyone around him. He will be sorely missed and we were honored to have him as a part of the Yakima family.
“In honor of Kelly McGarry, New Zealand’s legendary freeride mountain biker, we Kelly’s friends and family are establishing a trust to support his passion: the New Zealand biking community.
McGarry was a hugely influential and inspirational character on the bike and off his bike, touching the lives of bikers, trail builders and youth in New Zealand and around the world.
The trust will advocate for and build mountain bike trails in New Zealand and support emerging/promising/rising New Zealander mountain bikers in pursuit of achieving their goals domestically and abroad.
We are registering the memorial trust as an official charity organization in New Zealand.”
