32 year-old Jim “The Real Deal” McNeil was killed over the weekend when his motorcycle experienced mechanical failure, causing him to miss his landing.

McNeil was a professional motorcycle stunt rider and was on the Boost Mobile sponsored FMX team for nearly a decade. He also competed in five X-Games. He died in Fort Worth where he was practicing a jump at the Texas Motor Speedway. Witnesses say he missed his landing and hit the ramp, crushing his chest against the handlebars.

The stunt rider was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead less than hour later of blunt force trauma to his neck and chest. This is the first death of the tour in fourteen years.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the victim.
