Canadian freeride and downhill mountain biker Jordie Lunn, 36, passed away on Wednesday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, after crashing during a trail ride and suffering head injuries.
Lunn raced on the Downhill World Cup circuit in the early 2000s before shifting all of his attention to trail and freeriding, where he had a successful film career, in movies such as Ride to the Hills, The Collective and ROAM, and, more recently, his own Rough AF series. He was on the national team for three years.
