“While we are shocked and filled with grief, we know that he would want us to celebrate his life instead of mourning his death. Motorsport can be a dangerous undertaking, despite the organizers taking every precaution, accidents can happen; riders understand the nature of their passion and the consequences of participating as well as acceptance of the risks. He was a wonderful person with a great passion for the Sport; all he wanted to do was race. That love and passion is what brings us together; let’s rally around that strength and community to remember our riders, and remember we love doing what we do.”
