The Gofundme campaign described the brothers as "inseperable" and explains they were riding in the event with their sons when the tragedy occurred.

"Matt and Adam lived a full life, dedicated to Jesus Christ, their families, and each other," the campaign states. "Each a Rock Star in their own rite, Adam leaves behind his wife Shannon, and son Jacob, and Matt leaves behind his wife April, his son Michael, and his 3 daughters Amanda, Abby and Sarah."

Donors are flooding in from California, where the brothers are from, as well as from members of the cycling community in Utah. The campaign has already raised more than $70 thousand dollars from 645 donations. Click here to donate.
