The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb endured early tragedy today, when 54-year-old motorcycle competitor Bobby Goodin crashed after crossing the finish line at the peak.

When we arrived at the summit, we spoke to a couple of photographers and riders who had seen the accident. It seems Goodin crossed the line and was still going at a decent clip when he raised his hand to celebrate making it to the top. He lost the front end on the unpaved section at the top and the bike veered right, launching Goodin over the edge, flipping him end-over-end into a patch of boulders.

When EMTs reached him he was unconscious, so they they performed CPR until he was medevac'ed an hour later to Penrose Hospital. This was Goodin's second time competing, the Flower Mound, Texas native riding a Triumph 675R in the Middleweight class. He competed last year on an Aprilia, seen above.

Sadly, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that Goodin has succumbed to his injuries, marking the fifth time someone has died at the Pikes Peak hill climb, the last being in 2005. Our thoughts go out to Goodin's friends and family.

      I don't think it's as sad as people depict it. He was riding a bike in one of the most famous hillclimb events in the world, at 54. He was enjoying life much more than half of us, and he didn't die falling from the stairs, driving back home after a 10-hour shift or during a robbery. Yes, too bad his life ended, but what a life. Coming from a guy who never touched a bike again after a fairly nasty crash, I'll never figure guys who ride tuned bikes on anything other than a race track. Yet, they are pursuing their dreams and passion, something I admire in most cases. It's much more sad when Joe Avearge dies at home and no one gives a rat about him, his family or how he died and how they are going to carry on.

        ?? Perhaps those signature apps don't allow comments or words others do? Is ITT the same as 'it'?

      How tragic and sad. I know we've all heard this before, but I truly believe in these words.....At least he died doing what he loved.

      Culling the herd at 54 is kinda late but this should teach young folks that showing off on a motorcycle will get you a swift exit from this life. I hate to make humor at a death, but this was not from racing - this was from a lack of common sense.

      Ouch…54 is still a young man these days…although he was still riding a performance machine in a national-class event he must have had his share of oweee days waking up stiff and sore….an oh **** last day on this mortal coil by raising your hand off the handlebars to wave to the crowd is just, well, oh ****.

      May Bobby Goodin rest in peace, knowing he died doing what he loved, then lean over and ask God to promote annoying blogger FuelToTheFryer to hell. You piece of crap hating on a dead man. Who cares what he did? You want natural selection, be ready . God has a plan for your sorry ass
