Kevin Ash omkom i mc-ulykke

Del:

 

Kevin Ash (53) er et kjent navn for mange motorsykkelinteresserte, også her i Norge og han nøt stor respekt i sin jobb som motorsykkeljournalist i The Telegraph i 15 år.

 

BMW hadde invitert flere til Sør-Afrika for sin lansering av BMW R 1200 GS. Hva som har skjedd, er ikke blitt kjent men han døde i en motorsykkelulykke.

 

BMW har sendt ut en offisiell uttalelse der de beklager dypt at han døde i motorsykkelulykke nord for George (25 mil fra Cape Town), Sør-Afrika. De ønsker ikke å gi en nærmere forklaring på nåværende tidspunkt i respekt for hans familie og venner.

 

Kevin Ash’s eldste datter har lagt ut en tekst på sin fars webside:

Kevin Ash passed away on January 22nd, due to a motorcycle accident during a press launch in South Africa. The phrase “he died doing what he loved” sprang to mind, but I would like to stamp that firmly out. He loved his family more, and we love him. As his oldest daughter, I only recently started to fully realize just how much further his parenting went than most; on receiving a tearful phone call at Stansted airport, it was a natural response to immediately cancel his press launch and ride back home to teach trigonometry the night before exams.

Everything he did was entirely for his children and his wife, and å little bit for his cat.

My parents loved each other very much, and I hope that one day we can learn to live without him.

 

The Telegraph har laget en artikkel om han også, som du kan lese her.
