The mountain biker was wearing a helmet and other safety gear during a sanctioned race when he crashed but was unresponsive after life-saving measures were attempted.

The victim ultimately succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene by AFR personnel. Due to the rugged terrain in the area, JCSO Search and Rescue (SAR) responded to assist.
