Freestyle motocross champ and X Games gold medalist Jeremy Lusk passed away on Tuesday in Costa Rica due to head injuries from a motocross injury last Saturday.

He encountered swelling to the brain after crashing head-first while attempting a backflip.

Lusk was 24 and is survived by his wife, Lauren Lusk.

So young. So sad.

    Re: LizardKinG
    Umm I'm sure he probably was wearing a helmet…
    Helmets don't make you invincible…



  26. 26

    this is so sad. it so upsetting to see such a young, talented guy like jeremy die. and for the people saying that it is immature and reckless, it is the total opposite. he was wearing a helmet and is a professional..sadly he just didnt land the trick and it was fatal.

    rest in peace jeremy, my prayers are with his family, friends, and the rest of the metal mulisha and osiris riders.



  27. 27

    Sad.. So young… Why couldn't lg's old ass be the one to perish iinstead….



  28. 28

    Re: LG sez Ladiva is simply TRASH! – He wasn't acting immature, or reckless.
    He did this for a living, has won awards for what he did, wearing appropriate gear and was demonstrating tricks at an motocross event.

    Re: LG sez Ladiva is simply TRASH! – yeah LG that was harsh. the poor man is dead.

    Bossip just received the real story of Chris Brown and Rihanna’s fight from a highly placed source in the Chris Brown legal camp:

    They were in the car leaving the Clive Davis party. While Chris was driving, he got a phone call from a young lady. Our source tells us that Rihanna knew that Chris had been messing around with this particular girl and she has, as of late, been the reason for many of their heated arguments. Rihanna got a glimpse of the phone, saw the name and number and immediately recognized who it was. She went ballistic and began to “beat the sh*t” out of Chris (while driving). She was so uncontrollable, that Chris began to fight back in self defense, which ensued the fight. Rihanna’s rage stemmed from Chris’ questionable fidelity in the last few months.

    Re: Long Dong Connery – Oh well thanks a whole lot! Your response just made it all clearer and better in my head………..And who said anything about cars being involved in this young man's accident or my nephews? I think you are missing a nice gene or something.



  36. 36

    I never heard of him, so I looked him up on the internets and he was a sexy little bastard! I wish I was the nurse in his room. I would have taken a taste of his package while no one was looking.

    Re: m-dizzle – stop it.

    Re: **GIRLCARDINALSFAN** – relax. i truely think he was trying to be nice to you. sorry about your nephew.

    Sometimes it takes a knock on the head to see things more clearly.. Other times, that just doesn't work!



  40. 40

    R.I.P. Jeremy , You will always be an inspiration to everyone around you and your fans. i pray peace for you family. You are in a better place, teachin the angles to ride no doubt. you will be severely missed.

    For all you idiot haters, get and fn life…… You have no idea who he is or the work he has done and have probably never seen a competition in your life…Karma people Karma…..



  41. 41

    That sucks!!! Always sucks to see someone that young die like that! Backflips have ruined freestyle and are going to kill and cripple lots more people in the near future. Now the competitions have just become a backflip fest. Travis Pastrana's double back was probably the most amazing thing ever pulled at X-Games, but now the bar is too high and lots more are going to get messed up trying to this and similar moves. Riders don't just talk about whether they can pull a trick, but rather if they will survive it. Might as well roll in lava pits and pits filled with cobras for them to jump over.

    Re: LG sez Ladiva is simply TRASH! – reck⋅less   [rek-lis] Show IPA Pronunciation
    –adjective
    1. utterly unconcerned about the consequences of some action; without caution; careless (usually fol. by of): to be reckless of danger.
    2. characterized by or proceeding from such carelessness.

    It's not like he was drinking with his buddies in the desert and decided to pick up a motorcycle, He wasn't careless or immature. He took precaution, and preformed a trick he had done before. It is a sport, that takes practice, skill and some consider it to be an art form.

    I have yet to meet a person that goes to a motocross event to see someone break their neck and/or die.

    I'm not saying it's not without danger or consequences. Hell, every time you get into a car, it's not without a degree of danger.

    But your comment is just disrespectful.

    Re: LG sez Ladiva is simply TRASH! – no darling. I just want ppl to know that you ain't shit n I hope you die. Please enlighten us with your demise…. thank you….

    Motorcycles are for idiots anyways, so we're probably better off without him. I just looked up some pics of this dude, seems like a real dirt bag. He was from Temecula, which, if your familiar with southern ca, is home to some serious dub-t losers.

    So sad! Prayers to his family.



  60. 60

    Re: PFB2000 – Actually he was from San Diego, and resided in Temecula, because of land is cheaper, so it is easier to make into courses, because of the housing ratio, and that is where most of the pro's in California practice.

    And where are you from? Disrepectfuldoucheland, USA.

    I don't understand why people can't even leave a post about someone's death alone - without ignorant comments like this.



  61. 61

    WOW everybody saying that he was a dirt bag and saying that he is a dumbass and whatever else you want to call him need to seriously stop. He was a husband, son, and friend to many. How would you feel if you were close to him or his family and friends? I personally know some of his fellow MM riders and I am heartbroken by this. He was an amazing rider and was nothing but an all around nice guy outside of riding.

    If you have nothing nice to say, why would you say something at all? This is somebody who has passed away, why would you say mean and rude shit about him when you didn't even know him.

    Some of you people need to learn some decency and have respect for a fallen hero. Jeremy wasn't just a world class athlete who pushed the envelop in the sport he loved, he was also a very good person, husband, son and friend to many. Seeing people leave negative comments makes me want to book a flight to wherever it is that they live and beat the fucking shit out of them. With all that aside, RIP Jeremy. You were one of the best and will never be forgotten. My condolences go to his family, wife and closest friends.

  81. 81

    Re: LG sez Ladiva is simply TRASH! – Anyone who enjoys the motox sport, goes to these events to have a good time and appriciate how hard these guys work, not in hopes of seeing something tragic like this happen. You 'LG' must not appriciate this sport, and if you dont…why are you critisizing the people that do, and the people that are showing there respect to Lusk and his family. DUMB

    R.I.P Lusk



  82. 82

    As someone who worked in the MX industry for over 10 years, remember that these guys (and women) are athlets. This is a sport and for most, a lifestyle. These guys practice all the time and almost all wear helmets. Helmets will not always save your life. Please, dont talk about how dumb he was or how dumb it is. These guys work their asses off and they all know the risk that comes with it. There are higher death ratios with skiing and snowboarding then with mx. I am sure he died doing what he loved. How many can say that???
