Anyone into dirtbike riding has heard of the Lusk's. Jeremy Lusk had an accident and died as a result of head injuries sustained in a weekend crash during a competition in Costa Rica. A sad day in the freestyle world :(

Though it is sad, I really am surprised this doesn't happen more often with the free style riders. Those guys are nuts!!!!

Hate to see someone die doing what they love to do but it is a price we all seem to pay. All in time we all pass and it is with that in mind that I say that prayers and thoughts be with the ones who loved him. A fallen rider has passed doing what he loved !!! God Bless

Very sad for all involved. I wonder how long before we can pay to see people just kill themselves or others.

i believe they're cousins...

the wreck was the result of an attempted heart breaker-back flip... he crashed trying the same trick in the 2007 X-Games... hes landed several and definitely a gnarly trick
