Strathpuffer 2009 in Memory of Stuart Ruffell
As many will know a long standing stalwart of the Scottish downhill scene, Stuart Ruffell, sadly passed away recently. Stuart was a previous owner of the legendary Probikesport in Innerleithen, organiser of the Innerleithen Winter Wet and Wild series in past years and a chairman of the SDA. Outside of the downhill scene he was a leader in the Mountain Rescue amongst other things.
In January this year Stuart was entered again in the Strathpuffer 24 hour event, we intend to compete again this year in Stuarts memory.
As a mark of respect for our good friend Stuart, the “OLD PUFFERS” team consisting of Dave Hutchens, Alisdair Camburn and Brian Gibb will again be competing in the Strathpuffer 24 hour MTB event in January 2009, but we want to raise money in his memory for the Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA) that Stuart was involved with.
Stuart will be there in spirit I am sure making sure that we keep pedalling to the bitter end. We thought it would be a nice gesture to raise money for a charity that he was directly involved with.
Please dig deep and sponsor us online here.
So dig deep folks and give to a worthy cause!
