Bobby Goodin Safety Fund Established

· Jul. 3, 2014, 4:03 pm

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and the family of Bobby Goodin have joined forces in establishing a safety fund after Goodin’s tragic death earlier this week. KRCC’s Dana Cronin reports.

The Goodin family wants the fund dedicated to improving motorcycle safety on the Pikes Peak course, which features switchbacks and over 100 challenging turns before finishing at the peak’s summit. A portion of the fund will also be reserved for the financial security of Bobby Goodins’ daughters, Jacquelyn and Melissa, both in their 20’s.

Goodin was killed in a motorcycle accident on Sunday after completing the 12-mile race. This was his second year competing in the hill climb.

The competition just completed its 92nd year.
