- R.I.P Jason MCRoy
I still remember all these years later, massively effected me for months afterwards, but I can still watch Dirt for a source if inspiration on the darker days or if I need a kick up the arse to get out on the bike. I’m glad I can say I was part of the nineties era in mountain biking, it’s still makes me smile 🙂Posted 4 years agoFuriousSubscriber
When I started mountain biking JMC was a real inspiration and possibly my first sporting hero. I remember being hit really hard when I learned of his death, it was just a shock.
It always reminds me that you really don’t know how long you’ve got on this blue and green ball so you need to make the most of it – Jason certainly did.Posted 4 years ago
18 years ago today the world lost a legend
In August 1995 he was struck by a lorry on the A628 while riding home on his Harley Davidson from Steve Peat’s house.
The lorry driver was never traced.
Jason died at the roadside.
Taken at the peak of his career, an inspiration to generations of mountain bikers
Taking the kids out later for a ride in his memory
Our youngest, Macroy is just on his balance bike and showing no fear!
Rest in Peace JMCPosted 4 years agodiscoduckMember
A true inspiration, I still get choked every time I drive past his shrine, I was sickened to hear of his death and often wonder what he would have made of today’s riding,
He was an exceptionally talented and fit rider,
Mackem, I wonder if the lorry driver remembers too 😥
I certainly do.Posted 4 years agofranksinatraSubscriber
That two wheel drift through the gate and the bit filmed form the back of the truck as he hammered down the track are two images that are permanently etched in my memory. Totally inspiring.
I can’t watch my Dirt VHS as I wore it out. Thank god for youtube!
A legend in the making, would have been one of the greatest I’m sure.Posted 4 years agomattbibbingsMember
I don’t do ‘heros’ but JMC comes as close as it gets for me.
I remember finding out whilst watching cycling on eurosport at my grandads house and David Duffield announced it in the middle of his race commentary. He couldn’t quite believe what he was saying and I couldn’t quite believe what I was hearing. Google wasn’t an option back then so it took a while to be true.Posted 4 years ago
