We have received the sad news that Don Matthews has passed away. The outgoing and popular CZ rider was a fixture at Northwest regional motocross races, and traveled to several events across the country the past couple of seasons. He was helpful in getting many of our current members involved in the sport, and he also ran for Western Trustee in this year’s election. Don’s brother Eric said, “It is with great sadness that I must (report that) Don had a battle with pneumonia since a few days before Christmas. He withstood a lot of things in his life, but could not compete with this. He died peacefully last night (January 14) at St. Charles Hospital in Bend (Oregon). Godspeed, Don.
