Steamboat Springs — Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg identified the man who died Saturday while mountain biking on Emerald Mountain as Jeff Scheidt, a physical therapist at Yampa Valley Medical Center.
Ryg said Scheidt, 51, is survived by his wife, Tracy Parcheta, and his 12-year-old daughter.
Ryg said an autopsy confirmed Sunday that Scheidt died of a heart attack while he was mountain biking on the backside of Emerald Mountain.
Emergency crews responded but were unable to revive Scheidt.
