Alex Harvill Dies During World World Record Jump Attempt
By Billy Rainford
I’m posting this update in a complete state of shock. Our old and dear motocross friend Alex Harvill has passed away from injuries sustained during the build-up to his world record distance jump attempt in Moses Lake, Washington.
Alex came north to Canada to race our series and you would never meet a nicer, friendlier racer than him. Brent Worrall brought this record-breaking attempt to my attention and I had planned on getting in touch with Alex for a triumphant interview in the next couple days.
I would like to extend my heart-felt condolences to Alex’s young family. He was like a breath of life-loving fresh air every time I’d see him in my travels. He will be sadly missed by everyone who ever had the pleasure of knowing him.
