JAMES THOMAS O’BRIEN 1967 – 2013
James loved the great outdoors, was a multi-sport athlete, and was a member of the Provincial Cycling team. Cycling was his true passion. He won his first race as a pee wee and carried on to race all over Canada and the United States. James had to leave the Manitoba Provincial Team when his kidneys failed, but even after his diagnosis he continued to ride and train right up until his passing. He was a licensed coach and cycling commissaire, enjoyed helping young riders develop and loved to watch them compete.
In recognition of James and all that he and the O’Brien family have done for the sport of cycling, the TT Championships will take place in James’ honor at Birds Hill Park on August 17.
All proceeds will be donated to the Kidney Foundation.
