Bobby Goodin, 54, was injured when he wrecked his motorcycle moments after crossing the finish line Sunday at The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Goodin lost control while he tried to slow down on the gravel parking lot atop Pikes Peak.The wreck sent his 2014 Triumph Daytona 675R up into the air to the left with Goodin landing on the rocks to his right.
He was lying face down, unconscious and motionless when EMTs arrived. El Paso County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Gregory White said in an email that the rider suffered serious injuries but his condition was unknown.
Paramedics gave the Flower Mound, Texas resident CPR within 10 minutes and continued to do so until he was taken from the 14,115-foot summit by Flight For Life to an area hospital. The helicopter left about an hour after the wreck.
Goodin was racing for the second time at the annual event after placing third as a rookie in the 1250 pro class.
