A 71-year-old male rider has died after a collision with a car in the Snowy Mountains, Victoria, yesterday (1 November 2019).
The collision happened about 3.15pm on the Barry Way, Jindabyne, near Tinworth Drive.
Police say the rider died at the scene “despite efforts to revive him”.
It is not yet known whether the rider was a local, heading home from the MotoGP last weekend or taking part in this weekend’s Honda Snowy Ride.
The scene of the crash is a straight section of bitumen road just on the edge of town near a sports centre.
The Barry Way is an epic 200km mostly gravel road that follows the Snowy River down toward the south east coast and is a favourite for adventure riders.
Monaro Police District officers established a crime scene and have begun investigations into the circumstances surrounding the crash.
A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
No charges have been laid.
Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the rider.
