This morning legendary New Zealand mountain biker James ‘Dodzy” Dodds lost his life in a tragic hunting accident. Our thoughts are with his partner Gabby Molloy and the tight knit mountain biking community of Rotorua. But Dodzy’s infectiousness grin and his positive attitude will be felt much further afield than Rotorua as the thoughts and condolences flooding in to Gabby’s Facebook page attest to. His passing is a huge loss not only to friends and family but to the global mountain biking community as a whole. He will be dearly missed.
