Sad to report that Bill Goodger, age 77, President of Midwest Masters Cycling Team passed away. He suffered severe injuries from a fall while on a cycling training ride in California. He was one of the top Master racer in Midwest, Crits, Road, Time Trial and Track. He dominated the TT's. Bill was a Professor of Veterinarian Medicine at UW Madison, Dairy.
I heard Bill ask a slightly faster younger rider at an awards ceremony, when would he be turning 60. The rider said next year. Bill replied "I guess next year I will be 2nd place." They both laughed.
There is a Tribute to William J. Goodger, (Bill) on the Reis Family Mortuary website. - see below:
