Man Dies After 'Double Jump' At The Spokane Motorcycle Raceway Park

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Saturday, May 25, 2013, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a motorcycle collision at a sanctioned motorcycle event at the Spokane Motorcycle Raceway Park in Airway Heights. 

The 51-year-old male victim had just completed a "double jump", according to witnesses, and was entering a turn. Witnesses said it appeared the rider's throttle stuck open as he drove straight off the track in the apex of the turn.
 
The motorcycle went airborne and landed approximately 45 feet from where it left the track. The rider continued to tumble after he was ejected from the motorcycle. Witnesses said the rider landed on his head after becoming airborne. The rider was pronounced deceased at the scene.
 
Sheriff's Office Collision Investigators investigated the scene. Based on the evidence it appeared the dynamics of the collision matched witness accounts. The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office will release the victim's name at a later time.
