Kelly McGarry (17 April 1982 – 1 February 2016) was a professional New Zealand freeride mountain biker. He was known for his best trick award in the 2013 Red Bull Rampage when he backflipped a 72-foot canyon gap. The video of the flip went viral on YouTube, getting over 30 million views. [1][2] McGarry was one of the most prolific and recognised participants in the sport of freeride mountain biking. His participation in Crankworx events made him a recognisable figure in the sport, and in 2015, McGarry held the record for most consecutive appearances at the event. He was also in the 2013 Munich X-Games Slopestyle Event, placing 12th out of 16 riders. [3]
