For purpose of info on this, The Rip to Tip, I think this is third run of this

Follow this link for footage taken yesterday, Very unfortunate for OX, I

did not know him, but I do know some of the participants of this ride,

If I had the time, and was in better physical shape, I would love to have ridden

just one leg of this thing

:thumbsup:

hopefully for his family/friends the pain of his passing is somewhat tempered with the fact that he was doing something he loved and surrounded by friends at the time...

RIP

What a tragic loss. RIP

On a side note the rip to the tip looks like an awesome ride. I wonder what went wrong that caused this.

He crashed in some whoops. This sport can bite you at any time no matter how good you are. I can only think of D-37 star racer Anthony Modica who crashed in a 'Best of the Desert' race and had to have his leg amputated at his hip and was in a coma for weeks.

And to think this was a fun ride, very tragic.
