I just heard there was a bad one at Glen Helen this morning.

Heard from people who were riding there today that a guy crashed and died. I guess on the jump before the finishline.

GodSpeed to a fellow racer....

Guys it was not wind, speed or track conditions. Flaggers did not play a part either it was a swap and thrown from the bike. I stayed with the rider until he was transported to where ever they take someone. I spent time with his friends and we spoke about how good a guy he was. I wanted to know who I was staying with. God Speed

Is it me or has that single wall jump thing before the finish table caused a lot of crashes in the last several years?

Rest easy Mr. Ow.

Horrible news to hear guys...prayers to the family and RIP to rider.  This can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone.  Keep it on 2 wheels safely.

Man losing two riders in socal both at tracks so close together is rough.  My condolences to the family and friend of those riders
