Pikes Peak Claims Life Of Motorcyclist Bobby Goodin
It’s always unfortunate to have to wake up and report this kind of news. Bobby Goodin, a 54-year-old racer from Flower Mound, Texas, was pronounced dead at the Penrose Main Hospital in Colorado Springs at around 9 A.M. yesterday morning, reports the Denver Post. Bobby was a participant in this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and was racing his 2014 Triumph motorcycle in the Middleweight class. He managed to finish the race, but attempting to make a stop at the top of the run, his motorcycle careened off the mountain sending him and his bike into a rock ledge below.

Initial reports stated that Goodin was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, he did not survive his injuries. If there is any sort of positive outlook, no other racers were injured during this year’s running.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Goodin’s friends and family during this difficult time.
