the FLAT4 group had accidents today and we lost a rider :(

1st and foremost i am releasing this information now since friends, family, love ones are getting unconfirmed rumors and needless to say its causing a lot of emotional stress. therefor i am now releasing this information since the time is correct.

around 2pm today

Pilotx1 group: had a 3 bike accident in gaysmills WI. from what i have been told they crashed in a decreasing radius turn.

1 rider: crankbass died at the scene (his family has been made aware by the police)

GeraldRisch: broken collar bone

Naked_1: hand injury.


both geraldrishch & Naked_1 are being treated in the hospital and being taken care of.

from my understanding all bikes that were in this accident are impounded right now under investigation as there was a death. there family's are making arrangements to pick the 2 riders up, Crankbass's family or next of kin will be handling this terrible tragedy in there own way.

from my understanding a lot of the other riders are heading back home as this no doubt is an emotional time.


i have no other details that need to be release at this time.



my heart goes out to the family and friends of Crankbass and the riders that were hurt today.






ride safe.
