MOSES LAKE, WA – Daredevil motorcyclist Alex Harvill died Thursday while practicing a record breaking jump according to Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones.

Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison confirmed the death of 28-year-old Ephrata resident Alex Harvill who died after crashing his motorcycle while performing a practice jump at the Grant County International Airport Thursday morning.

“Coroner Morrison’s staff will conduct an autopsy on Friday to confirm the cause and manner of death, which is normal procedure. Our deepest sympathies go out to Alex’s family, friends and loved ones,” Jones said.

A video of the crash showed Harvill landed his jump short, crashing into the side of the landing ramp, throwing the rider into the air.
