About this video:
On May 2nd, Australian motocross farewelled a racing legend. Andrew
McFarlane tragically passed in Broadford, at round 3 of the Australian MX
Nats, leaving behind his loving wife Natalie, beautiful daughter Tayla,
mother, father and brother.
Racing was canceled, as Andrew's friends, team mates and fellow competitors
tried to understand how and why such a devastating thing could happen to
such an amazing man.
Andrew's JDR Motorex KTM teammate Tye Simmonds raised his hand on that day,
to ride with Andrew's #7 for the remainder of the season. To keep Andrew's
spirit and passion alive on the track.
Round 4 of the Australian MX Nats came to Toowoomba this past weekend, and
we saw Tye take the track, to do everything he could to put that #7 at the
front of the pack, as Andrew would have done.
Follow Tye throughout the day, and try to get understanding of what all of
these brave athletes face every time they put a helmet on.
Please take the time to donate to the Andrew McFarlane Trust Fund. All
financial contributions no matter how small will be appreciated, as together
the motorcycle community help build a foundation for Natalie and Tayla
without their hero, husband and father Andrew McFarlane.
