It's with deep sadness that we report the passing of BMX legend Kevin Robinson. Kevin died this morning of an apparent stroke in his native Rhode Island. He was 45. Kevin leaves behind his wife, Robin, three children, and countless family members, friends, and fans around the world. 

We'll have more on this as news becomes available.

His infectious smile always brightened up your day and if you just met him, you felt like you knew him for a lifetime. He always made everyone display the best version of themselves when he was around because of his energy and light hearted charisma. He chose to seek out the good in every situation making a point to focus on the moment. He really enjoyed that process. The .cornerstone of his foundation was to live life deliberately with incredible passion while lifting up others along the way. Your impact on others is the greatest currency on this planet and Kevin spent that to the best of his ability. He was a real life superhero to most and for myself and others, he was simply kid at heart that looked fear in the face everyday and did what he had to do anyhow. There wasn't any smoke or mirrors, just a badass that boldly stood toe-to-toe against adversity with the determination and willpower to .come out on top. He will always be a champion, not only in the action sports world, but more so in life. Who he was off the bike made him larger than life. It's what made him a legend. From working together closely at Woodward, to .competing with one another, to the ambulance rides to hospitals, to the u .containable laughter eating out while people looked at us like we were crazy, to watching your kids grow, I'll always be grateful for the memories we've made. We started off as friends and became family. Thank you for sharing your heart, your kindness and your light. I know that light will .continue to shine through Robin and the kids. Thank you for just simply being you Kev. I already miss you more than you know but I'll see you again. Love you buddeee! #resteasybrother #krob #legend

Kevin Robinson was a world class BMX rider but he was an even better Human Being. My heart goes out to his wife and children.
