THE TEAM THAT JOHN KOVACHI BUILT
October 19, 2011Tampa BMX Raceway
As many of you know we lost a BMX legend early this morning. A longtime friend, John Kovachi passed away in an Atlanta area hospital. John was a post heart transplant recipient and he lived every day with life and vigor. He loved BMX and taught many what it meant to enjoy what you do on and off the track. He was a mentor to some and a father figure to others. In John’s memory we want to let everyone know that the Kovachi Team will be at the Disney Cup this weekend and racing in memory of John. I can hear John telling me know that this is the best memorial we could give him, race hard, race smart but most of all love what you do. Please stop by the Kovachi tent to sign the memory book for the family and to pick up your memorial sticker to place on your helmet for the 2012 BMX racing season. Donations are being accepted to assist the family with educational expenses for John Michael.
