January 10, 2014 1:10pm

We are sad to report of the passing of Kasper Lynggaard, a motocross racer from Denmark who was killed this afternoon during practice at the Dortmund Supercross in Germany. According to several Europe-based websites, Lynggaard, who rode for the Danish team in the 2013 Motocross of Nations in Germany, was practicing in Dortmund when he crashed in the whoops. His heart apparently stopped at the moment of impact with the ground, and despite the best efforts of paramedics on the scene, he could not be revived.

We will have more news as it becomes available. Godspeed, Kasper.
