The BMX family lost a brother recently with UK rider Matthew Parker passing on after an unfortunate kayaking accident. Matthew was instrumental in putting on jams all over the UK and gave back to the riding scene–take some time out of your day to view the tribute video put together by his friend David Jones above.

Today we’ve learned the sad news that our close friend Mute has passed away after a Kayaking accident. Mute was an inspirational character in the UK BMX scene, putting on various street jams all over the country for many years. He did positive work in the community at large, inspiring young people to follow their dreams and supporting them along the way. Mute, you will be greatly missed by so many.
