Ride On Ethanol Biker

Cindy Zimmerman

We were saddened to hear about the passing of Doug Brandmahl, a general contractor from Virginia who became an annual ethanol promoter after a chance meeting in 2009.

Brandmahl was an avid motorcyclist who enjoyed attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and was on his way there in August of 2009 when he met Robert White with the Renewable Fuels Association, who was also on his way to the rally to promote ethanol to motorcycle enthusiasts. After learning about ethanol for the first time, Brandmahl offered to help White with the promotion and a lifelong friendship began.

Here are a couple of interviews with Doug as part of the RFA team at Sturgis, in 2011 and 2018.
