    Story

    We want to help out to give you the best send off.

    Love your MTB family.

    I spoke to Polly , Coopers mum and she agreed to let us help out . Many of us wont be able to attend the funeral but this is our way of feeling like we are involved. Below iv copied Jamie Edwards words about Cooper.

    This week brings some sad news that a familiar face of UK racing has passed away, Mr Andrew ‘Coop’ Cooper.

    Those of you that have raced a mountain bike in the UK will, almost certainly, have met Coop. A burning ball of enthusiasm and energy, Cooper was the voice of many an enduro, 4X or downhill race. Coop lived at the very heart of our sport, not the dizzy heights of World Cup or EWS, but at the grassroots, the core of UK mountain bike racing.

    You’d hear Coop before you saw him, firing encouragement into the microphone, gee’ing riders across the line and giving events the energy and enthusiasm that they could have easily lacked. When he wasn’t glued to the mic he was between the tape putting in his own race runs or in the pits, partying, smiling and bringing the same endless enthusiasm to his mountain bike family. Usually, a little hungover with a story of some night out, party or adventure he’d had the night before with some friends of his.

    Remembering Coop, Team Manager Dave recalled a story from Fort William World Cup. Coop was sleeping in his car and MC’ing the 4X Pro Tour, all whilst managing his health condition from the back of his car. Despite our insistence that he should stay with us, Coop was dedicated to his plan and staying on-site to be with his 4X family, ride, party and live the life he loved. That was Coop in a nutshell, 100% dedicated to good times, his mountain bike family and to the races that he devoted so much of this time to.

    There are so many people that knew Cooper better than we did, but as UK racers he’s someone we’ve spent countless weekends with and someone that has made our experience of British mountain biking what it is. Without his voice, British mountain bike racing would be a lot quieter and a lot less fun and funny.

    We’ll miss you Coop, thanks for the good times. We’re looking forward to a chance to get back to one of Chris Roberts’ races where we can have a proper weekend in your honour!
