Velodrome Philanthropist Randy Clark Passes Away

Randy Clark, a man described as a gracious philanthropist who donated time and money to the San Diego Velodrome, passed away on August 9, 2009.

Gary Westergren, M.C. and host of the many races featured at the San Diego Morley Field Velodrome, described Mr. Clark as a man who was 'overly quiet' about his 'overly generous' donations.

According to Sal from locally-based Leader Bikes, on the first Saturday (Aug. 15) following Mr. Clark's death, velodrome racers paid respect by placing a rose on the track, graciously followed by a lap around the track; the very velodrome Mr. Clark helped keep afloat.

Mr. Clark died from skin cancer. According to his friend (, Mr. Clark acquired a 'simple' skin cancer near his nose, which eventually spread throughout his body, particularly, his liver. He was 49 years old.

R.I.P. Randy I. Clark.
