Scot will be greatly missed for all that he has done for the sport of BMX.  Thoughts and prayers out to the Breithaupt family.

This is so heart breaking.  I don't think his contributions to BMX can be under stated but the thing I liked about him the most was the fact that SE was the very first rider owned company.  I also really respect that he designed all of those iconic bikes and they all rode badass.  Not a dud in the entire bunch.  It's been said a million times but he really was a pioneer in so many ways.  I will miss seeing his FB posts and his presence in the OS community.  He will be missed.  RIP OM.
