 10 years after Jason died, a memorial ride was arranged around the hills of Derbyshire and Cheshire, ensing at the spot on the Woodhead Pass where Jason died. Many turned up for the ride, but we also received from movng tributes from people who couldn't make it on the day. To all those who remembered the day,we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Awesome. Jason and Jim were a pleasure to have on the scene. Always smiling, always positive. Onward and Upward.

Living overseas makes the trip a little difficult and with a baby on the way doesn’t make it easy (Leigh is due today-the 24th)…this is something I would love to attend-even more so than a Scottish world cup! But one thing remains, Leigh and I have never forgotten JMC nor will we ever forget. I can not believe it has been 10 years. As I have said, I did not get the pleasure of becoming ‘good’ friends with Jason, but the time I was lucky enough to have shared with him was special. I only had a few meals with him when he was here in the states and casually said hello in the pits. There are times in ones life when you just know when people are special-and this I knew of him. Later on, Leigh and I spent some really special times with Jim and got to know him on a more personal level-this too is something we will always cherish.

I hope Jason’s family and close friends find comfort in knowing that he is still missed even by a guy that did not know him well. He is a special person, great athlete and will always be remembered worldwide. All sorts of the same things have been said, but it seems we can not ever ‘overuse’ them with JMC-he is just a real deal fellah.

Have fun all of you-he would like that.

Hi Guys

Jason was one of the reasons I started downhilling way back in '92, tempting me off my BMX, with him riding that "long travel" GT RTS back then. I loved the way he funded his first world cup season on a visa card...something some riders are still doing today!

An inspiration to us all then and still now...he showed us that our small island had the passionate and talented riders capable of success on the world cup stage...His name is still mentioned at every race I am at without fail.

Legend!

Have a good ride...

Regards
