Caleb Moore, Ride in Peace
The following statement was received this morning from the family of Caleb Moore, who suffered a crash during last week’s X Games while participating in Freestyle Snowmobile competition.
On behalf of the Moore family:
This morning Caleb Moore passed away. He will be truly missed and never forgotten.
The family wishes to express their deep gratitude for all the prayers and support they have received from all the fans, friends and family around the world that Caleb has inspired.
They would also like to thank the physicians and medical staff at both Aspen Valley Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital, Grand Junction for their care and dedication.
At this time, the family will not be making any other public statements. They continue to decline interviews. Thank you for continuing to respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.
Arrangements for a celebration of life are being made and an announcement will be made in the coming days.
The Athlete Recovery Fund is working with the Moore family, sponsors, and managers to help fundraise for costs that insurance will not cover including a portion of hospital bills and arrangements for his celebration of life. It is our goal to work with these parties to set up a solid structure of support for future athletes in the sports that Caleb participated in as we have accomplished in BMX, FMX and Skateboarding.
