Jeremy Lusk was very passionate about his Motocross career & he was very deft at performing all sorts of difficult tricks with his motorbike! He was able to walk away from a 2007 crash that could have killed him.This time, Jeremy Lusk didn’t make it.The “Pitbull” was only 24.Here’s more on this sad story from ESPN:
“Freestyle motocross star Jeremy Lusk died early in the morning EST on Tuesday, Feb. 10 from head injuries he suffered at an event in Costa Rica on Saturday, Feb. 7. Lusk sustained the injuries when he under-rotated a Hart Attack backflip and slammed head-first to the dirt. Like the fighter he was, Jeremy — nicknamed Pitbull for his tenacious attitude and great strength — survived an initial surgery late in the evening on Saturday that was designed to stem brain swelling, even though his odds of living through the surgery were very long. But his condition — touch and go from the moment he went down — worsened late in the day on Monday.Some may remember that he crashed in almost identical fashion in the Freestyle semifinals at X Games ’07: He under-rotated a Hart Attack backflip but somehow walked away from that scary slam. In March ’08, while preparing for April’s Moto X World Championships, Lusk said that he didn’t throw the Hart Attack backflip for months after his X Games crash. “I was a little scared of it,” he stated.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here:
