It’s always so hard to let people know a rider has passed away. After a long battle with cancer, Australia’s Sam Tormey has been relieved of his pain and has moved on. We didn’t know Sam personally, but we have seen nothing but amazing things about him and he was truly a rider that loved BMX and was good for BMX. Our thoughts are with Sam and his family. Rest in Peace, Sam!
“Unfortunately yesterday Sam passed away due to cancer, it’s terrible that such a nice young kid can be dealt such a harsh card. I was fortunate enough to ride with Sam a few times and he was a delight to be with and his passion for riding was strong. My best wishes go out to Sam’s family and friends for the loss of such a good person.” – Focalpoint
