Thumbs down Jono Porter Passed Away

For those that are into motorcross, Crusty Demons, etc
you will be upset to know that Jono Porter passed away on Wednesday afternoon in Nambour hospital.

He was critically injured in a motorcross accident while racing on the Sunshine coast on Sunday and his life support system was turned off in the hospital around 4pm.

Our local paper ran a front cover on him yesterday and was on the news earlier in the week.

I don't know if motorcross fans down south have heard, so thought I'd let those amongst us know.

RIP Jono.

I don't follow any kind of motorcross but may he Rest In Peace.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
