It is with incredible sadness that we write of the passing of Australian FMX pro Tyrone Gilks.

The 19 year old from Newcastle, Australia was working up to beating Robbie Maddison’s world record for a distance jump on a 250cc bike yesterday and suffered a big crash from which he tragically did not recover. He was taken to John Hunter Hospital on  Thursday morning with critical  chest injuries after failing to make a 90-metre jump at Maitland  Showground.

Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with Tyrone’s family and friends right now.

R.I.P Tyrone.
