FMX star Mike Cinqmars is dead

Mike Cinqmars, the freestyle motocrosser (FMX), reportedly passed away on December 11, 2009. We have not yet received any word from the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner’s Department on the cause of his death. While the cause of his death is still unconfirmed, an autopsy is scheduled for sometime next week.

Mike "Cinq" Cinqmars was known for a number of extreme motorcycle accomplishments. These accomplishments include; winning the silver medal first freestyle event at the 1999 X Games just behind Travis Pastrana’s gold, jumping a two-story house for MTV’s "Senseless Acts of Video", and his spring break jump in Cancun, Mexico. Mike was 31 years old.

We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends and his fans. We pray that he is in a better place.
