R.I.P. Kat Spann

August 17, 2009 11:28am

It is with deep regret that we write to inform the motocross community of the passing of Kat Spann. Her battle with cancer was a valiant one, but one that eventually claimed her life.

Kat was born March 17, 1952 and was one of the great entrepreneurs in the off-road publishing world. She has the longest running motocross newspaper – Tex-MX and Southern Dirt Bike – before closing the doors in order to pursue a life with her husband, two sons and two grandsons.

She was an icon in the world of motocross media and will be greatly missed by all she touched.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
