Pat Casey, a BMX rider, passed away following a crash at a motocross course in San Diego. He was 29.

According to the authorities, a man was completing a jump on the ramps at the Slayground Motocross Park in Ramona on Tuesday afternoon when his motorcycle collapsed.

“Deputies and paramedics attempted life-saving measures. However, the man was pronounced deceased at the scene,” the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a release.

Around 2:45 p.m. local time, according to police, they responded to a report of a person who had been injured in a motorbike accident. They acknowledged that the issue is still being investigated.
On social media, Casey’s fellow BMX racers were eager to pay respects to the famous athlete.

“The world lost one of the baddest to ever do it. I’m so sorry for his wife and kids,” TJ Lavin wrote alongside a photo of Casey on Instagram. “@patcaseybmx will forever be remembered for the down to earth sweetheart of a guy that he was. #bmxfamily.”

“See you on the other side my brother. Thank you for the years of love,” wrote Tyler Fernengel in the comments section of Casey’s latest Instagram post, while Tyler Rizzi added, “I love you brother ????❤️ I will continue to look up to you on every aspect in life. RIP.”

Casey leaves behind his wife Chase Casey and their two children: 8-year-old son Reid, who is also an avid biker, and daughter Taytum, 7.

“Its wild to have such an awesome son who loves bmx as much as I do,” Casey wrote in part alongside a carousel of pictures and clips of Reid competing last month.

Last month, the family traveled to France to cheer on Casey as he participated in a FISE World competition in Montpellier. They later traveled to Paris, where they took a number of pictures to remember their time there.

Casey’s wife posted a picture of the couple in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris shortly after Casey passed away.
Chase captioned the image, “Mau loa baby,” which is Hawaiian for “forever.”

On Wednesday, she also posted a number of tributes to her deceased husband on her Instagram Story, including one in which she referred to him as a “amazing father, rider, and husband.”

According to Dirt Bike Lover, Casey, a Monster Energy sponsored athlete, won consecutive X Games medals in 2012 and 2013.
