I read that on the news this morning at the same time as I heard about the Manchester attack. I know he'd been in an accident and was critically ill, but it was still a shock that he'd died.
We're big motorsport people in our house, mainly F1, but my dad and I follow the various motorbike categories as much as we can too. He will be deeply missed.
It's been a horrible day for news all round, hasn't it?
