San Diego man was killed

Ohh.. this is really very sad news we lost one best off road rider. I have seen many of his off road biking videos and he was really great every time. May God give peace to his soul:

Thoughts and Prayers go out to your family.

It is always hard to see a fellow brother go down. My most sincere thoughts go out to the family and our prayers will be with you during this horible time. Semper Fi.

It's sad

Ohh .. this is really sad to hear this. I met this man once when he came to Pennsylvania to participate in off road biking competition long time back. May God give him NIRVANA and MOKSHA.
