The French trails scene has lost a great rider and person… Rest in Peace, Denis Mowgly.
The BMX world has lost too many great people over the years. A few weeks back, the scene over in France lost Denis “Mowgly” Darbeau who had passed from heart complications while running. Denis was a big part of the trails scene over in France, but was one of those riders that crushed it on everything he touched, which is clear in this video Tom Arkus put together from time he had spent with Denis. We highly suggest you give the video a watch since it’s a reminder of just how talented Denis really was on a bike and the good vibe he put off. Also, if you want to help out Denis’ family, they have a Fundraiser page setup that you can donate some money to. Rest in Peace, Denis. You won’t be forgotten!
“Loosing a friend is never easy, especially at such an early age. It has been very difficult to accept. It took me some time before I could watch any video footage of Denis. He is a dear friend that I admire very much. Denis left a positive impact on the trail community all across the globe. I wanted to share some footage I had of him from a couple of Trail Trips we did when we where younger.” – Tom Arkus
