MTB legend builder Charlie Cunningham severely injured

I was deeply saddened to hear the news that Charlie Cunningham, legendary MTB bike builder and inventor, has been severely injured in a crash and has sustained a brain injury. You can read more about it here. And about Charlie here.

Caroline James, a friend of Charlie and partner Jacquie Phelan, has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover Medical costs.


man, that sounds pretty rough. he can’t do much, but is conscious…

i know nothing about him, but it sounds like a sad situation :frowning:

He invented so much of what is used in mtbs, some stuff took 30 years to catch up with him.

Ps Jacqui isn’t behind the gofundme, but she’s still a1, as is Charlie.

Jobst and sheldon and Charlie and…

Thanks for pointing that out Blakey. I’ve made a correction to the above post.

Yes Charlie’s contribution to mountain biking is massive. A maverick and leading light for sure.
