A retired Ogden dentist who crashed in last month's LOTOJA Classic bike race has died from his injuries.
Douglas Gordon Cottle, 62, passed away on Saturday. He had sustained severe head injuries on Sept. 9 during the Logan, Utah, to Jackson Hole, Wyo., race. Cottle had been a regular entrant in the 206-mile, one-day race, which this year had about 1,500 cyclists participating.
Cottle was the second fatality connected to this year's event. Robert Verhaaren, 42, of Mesa, Ariz., died during the race after falling about 35 feet from a bridge in Wyoming into the Snake River.
