“I think of Tim as a legend in the mountain bike community, he had a passion for riding and loved it so dearly,” said Jeff Tessier, a friend of Watkins. “He was a guy that just seemed like nothing ever got him down, always a smile on his face, always happy, always happy to help you and even if you were lost on a trail he would go all out to help you find your way back.”
