Texas Racer Dies in Crash at Colorado Springs Track

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a racer from Texas has died after he crashed his motorcycle at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb near Colorado Springs.

Sgt. Greg White of the El Paso County Sheriff’s office tells The Associated Press that 54-year-old Bobby Goodin died from his injuries after Sunday’s accident.

Race host Colorado Springs Sports Corp. says Goodin’s death is the first for a motorcycle racer since 1982 and the fifth race-related death in the event’s 92-year history.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that the Flower Mound, Texas, man lost control as he tried to slow down on a gravel parking lot after crossing the finish line on Pikes Peak’s 14,115-foot summit, landing on rocks.

He was flown to a hospital after emergency crews found him unconscious and paramedics performed CPR.

Goodin was racing for the second time.
