A fixture of the American cycling industry, Dave Whittingham of Boulder, Colorado died July 30th at age 67.

Whittingham crashed while on a bike ride outside of Boulder on July 20 and suffered a head injury. He was in a coma on life support for 10 days before he died.

Whittingham was the owner of DRW Design, a Boulder-based marketing company in operation since 2000.

He was also known for crafting specialty awards and trophies. He handmade the last four Lifetime Achievement Award trophies for the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association (BPSA).

“Dave was the ultimate team player,” says Ray Keener, executive director of BPSA. “We worked together on dozens of projects over the decades, and you could always be sure of two things: He would show up with creativity and dedication, and his kindness and understated manner would make everyone around him better.”
