Keith Flint has passed at the age of 49. Flint was the well-known front man of The Prodigy and it was via a post to the band’s Instagram page that we learned he took his own life in his home over the weekend.
In addition to his musical career, Flint was also an avid motorcyclist. He grew up riding motorcycles with his brothers and later in life got the itch to go racing. He achieved success as a team boss in British Superbike with rider James Rispoli and later as owner of Team Traction Control in the IOMTT. There, with rider Ian Hutchinson, his team earned wins in the 2015 and 2016 Supersport class and later took victory in the Ulster GP.
Flint was hugely passionate about motorcycle racing and widely respected in the paddock. He regularly equated the camaraderie of the garage to that of his band, and expressed on multiple occasions that his long-term goals were to achieve more success in the realm of racing. It’s with a heavy heart that we share this news, and we offer our condolences to Flint’s family and friends at this time.
