A statement from Jordie Lunn's family says the 36-year-old was killed while trail riding in Cabo San Lucas with friends.

'Jordie lost his life doing exactly what he loved, ' Lunn's family continued.

They say Lunn had an incredible 20-plus year career as a mountain biker and he will always be cherished for the love that he gave to his family, friends and fans.

He later turned to free riding and famously became the first mountain biker to land a corked 720 back in 2007.

Reports are coming in that famous Canadian free rider, Jordie Lunn has died of a head injury while riding in Mexico with Darren Berrecloth, Greg Watts and Brayden Barrett-Hay. He was a brother to me as we grew up in a small town with nothing other than our parents love and our determination to ride bikes, have fun and get rad. His videos earned him sponsorships from major brands like Rocky Mountain Bikes, SRAM, RockShox, Truvativ and RockStar Energy. He was the top Canadian at Mont-Sainte-Anne in 2003, the second-ranked North American in the 2003 World Cup standings, and the best-trick victor at several competitions, including John Henry Jump Jam 2012 and Whistler Crankworx 2012.

"Jordie's appearance was intimidating; a big man, covered in tattoos, gold teeth, and always wearing the most ridiculous kit on the mountain", writes Pink Bike on his passing.

Lunn's legacy will include the huge tricks and death defying stunts he performed regularly. He also starred in a series of extreme mountain biking films and videos, such as his self-produced Rough AF series, and served three years as a member of the national downhill team.

"Our hearts are broken! Another one of our friends has been taken well before his time", the statement from the account's operator read.

Lunn, who was world renowned for his trick mountain bike riding, was in Baja, Mexico, filming a web series. "My condolences go out to his family because I know he loved his brothers and I know he was their glue".

"GUTTED. We lost a human that you hope everyone could be like". I love you and will never forget you.

Lunn was born in Parksville, BC and lived on Vancouver Island, BC. Among his accomplishments were the downhill biking trails at Bear Mountain Resort near Victoria.
