Mark Satkiewicz and I had known each other for exactly one year when he died yesterday of cardiac issues while out for a bike ride near his home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We were introduced by Blair Clark and Devin Riley from Canyon Bikes. I was headed out to ride his brand new gravel race, @sbtgrvl, that Canyon was sponsoring. He co-founded the event with Amy Charity & Ken Benesh. The race ended up being about the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike; it was a glorious day. Mark and his partners had put so much care and thought into the whole thing. The two of us immediately connected on our love of bikes, business, family, really everything. We had both started careers in endurance sports after decades in other businesses. We’d both spent time in Los Angeles. We had so much in common. I took this photo on a USA Cycling trip to Bentonville, Arkansas with Tim Johnson and a bunch of other gravel event race directors. We spent a few days brainstorming on how we could all contribute to growing and strengthening the gravel community. Mark consistently had thoughtful and passionate input on our discussions. We also rode mountain bikes together every day, and Mark’s stoke level was high. He loved the bike community so much, and this photo represents how I’ll always remember him. In May I interviewed him for my blog (medium.com/@PeterAbraham). One of the things he said was that due to the pandemic he was spending every day with his wife and two daughters. I’m so happy that he was able to do that.
So long buddy. We’ll miss you. Sending love to his family & friends.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
