Bega is one of the guys who just always seemed to be there. Always working for the community from organizing races to fighting for rights, to providing space for messengers and the community. He was always forward looking and challenged us to look ahead too. He was brilliant and dedicated. CMWC wouldn’t be what it is today without Shawn. He wanted the IFBMA and CMWC to be truly international and he reached out around the world to make that happen. He was always easy to find at a championships anywhere in the world. You could just go to the registration or results table or one of the checkpoints and you would find him volunteering. I will miss his advice and know DC must be hurting today. This is just a huge loss. I still can’t believe it. RIP Shawn Bega Blumenfield. (c/o Joe Hendry)
