R.I.P. The Real Deal Jim McNeil

The Real Deal Jim McNeil seeing things through in Phoenix 2010


Today Freestylemx.com joins the moto community while mourning the loss of Jim McNeil who passed today while riding Freestyle Motocross.  In respect to his family and friends, not further details will be released at this time.

Jim possessed a talent coveted by many on the bike and off.  Smooth riding with just an edge of raw nerve puncuated Jim’s style and as current sponsorRockstar Energy’s first ever signed FMX rider, he represented the sport well and was a fan favorite.  Off the bike, Jim was liked by everyone.  (I know that is always said, but in this case it is undeniably true.)  He always had those around him laughing  in the locker room, the airplane, or just about anywhere or in any situation. 

We will miss you Jim.

    Jim McNeil’s Tribute Video By: BDubProductions
    A truly amazing song along with a truly amazing person. Bryan Wilkins (BDubProductions) and Donnie Barber (Barber Freestyle) filmed Jimmy at his FMX park @ Speedworld in Arizona. Mad love for Jimmy will always be in our hearts. He left us with so many incredible memories. He was the epitome of a true, professional FMX rider/image. My heart hurts and I shed tears every time I watch this. I will always love you with all of my heart Jimmy! R.I.P.
