This accident is a sad remainder of the risk we take in our sports. This young was doing something he enjoyed. He led a fine example of taking that extra step to be safe with the extra safety gear, and his family should be applauded for encouraging extra safety.
I ride at this park on a regular basis and do not see people wearing chest protectors, with limbs sticking out in the trails it stops, or helps prevent limbs from piercing your chest. I have not been able to find anymore information on the specifics of the accident. I am though concerned why any of our police agencies failed to respond. That seems as though that would be a morale issue more that "where the lines are drawn".
Due to this we may not know what happen to this young man. I would like to take his loss and turn it into more of a positive one.
Again, God Bless the family, loosing a child can be a great loss, been there.

If this is the same accident, my boyfriend and his friend may have been there. The kid either didnt see the sand bowl in front of him or was trying to jump it, got half way over and knew he couldnt make it. He jumped off the bike mid air and landed face first in the sand. Others were there and called paramedics while they cleared the sand from his face. The paramedics airlifted him out of the campground. They never knew what happened to the child (they did look for info online) came across this today looking for information about another incident. Like I said, not sure if this is the same accident but if it was, may give some closure to how it happened. If you go ride at the badlands, please be careful and always watch out for other riders.
