MEXICO CITY (AP) — Motocross rider Jeff Kargola has died after crashing while competing in the Rip to the Tip event that takes riders the length of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula.

Kargola’s team, Metal Mulisha, said he died Friday in San Felipe, Mexico, while riding with his family and friends. Details on the accident weren’t immediately available.

The San Clemente, Calif., native, known as “Ox,” was one of 38 riders in the eight-day, 1,408-mile race to Cabo San Lucas.

      You don’t even know what you’re talking about, how can you even think to say something like this. My son is one of the crew working with the “Rip to the Tip” and it was a very unfortunate accident. You should be ashamed of yourself! Peace be with you Ox!

        Godspeed Ox!
