In honor of the roots we climbed over, Craig. To the ones that tripped us up, broke lenses from our glasses, cracked helmets, & took our breath away.

Sam, we are so sorry for the loss of your dad. We were friends for over 25 years. Nobody knew the dent repair business better than him. He was a true artist at his work. He loved riding his bike and sometimes would come home looking like someone beat the crap out of him. But he didn’t let that stop himself from becoming better and better. He had a heart of gold and was always telling us a new story of a past adventure. I know he had his battles. But, I also know deep down it was beyond his control. He loved you Samantha and always talked about how proud he was of you and your accomplishments. I’ll miss our very lengthy conversations we would have and great meals together at The Pita House. Boy he loved eating there. He was a very talented and good friend that will never be forgotten. RIP bro! 🙏🙏

Met the Roubaud family first at my father’s business Gore’s Corvette World in the ‘80’s. Bob, Craig’s father was first. What a great man. Then one by one I was able to meet the sons. Just like their father all great men who were and are happy and positive all the time. Craig repaired dents on a Toyota I owned way back in 1990 through his paintless dent repair company named Fix A Dent. He repaired several dents for $175 that would have cost $1500 at the body shop I worked at as an appraiser. I was amazed at his ability and needless to say happy to save the money. After purchasing my first mountain bike in ‘94 is when I really began to see more of Craig. He was everywhere we went riding it seemed. We all shared countless great rides and stories on Piney Mountain before it became a gated community. From there I began to venture with the Greenville Mudslingers into Pisgah Forest or the likes of it every Saturday and sometimes Sundays. It was worth the hour drive from Greenville. Regardless where we were at we would run into Craig. Be it on the trail or some cool place to eat afterwards. Same applied to riding bicycles on the road. We would see him most every Tuesday at Donaldson Center for the races and then Thursdays on the road somewhere else. He always offered good riding and life advice that was to make you a better rider or person. He will be missed but thought of often. Any bike ride I go on I will say a little prayer of offering and thanksgiving for his spirit which may ride faster now than ever and shines over us all like a new star to illuminate the trails ahead. I would say rest in peace but think it’s appropriate to rather share the famous words of a Greenville Mudslinger named Herb who encourages us along the trails by saying. “Pedal, pedal, pedal.”
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Craig was a huge part of my early days in Greenville. A true free spirit he spread happiness and adventure to everyone he touched. Criag was a massive figure, always positive, always had time to share a story or make someone feel good about themselves. He was "the" mountain bike tour guide and ensured the very best rides for everyone. His famous line... "Something For Everyone" We spent hundreds of hours in the woods exploring unridden trails and listening to his life stories. Craig made it his mission to bring out the best in eveyone. He would yell "TOURS" as we descended down the hill and he knew the woods like no other. "Church of Cog" was his Sunday morning ritual, both on the road and in the woods. While we may have missed church, we found our spirituality in the wind and on the bike. Craig was a real dog lover... Spent time with every dog including mine. "Thats a happy dog" for every dog he saw without a leash. You lived life the way you wanted to live it will always have a space in Katie and my life. Fly high brother, may you ride endless trails with hundreds of unleashed dogs running beside you.
