With the tragic loss of a beloved friend and downhill family member, we’d like to expand upon our post acknowledging the passing of Allysson Nascimento, known fondly to many as Pastrana.
Alongside the entire racing community, we are shocked and absolutely devastated by this loss. With great sadness, we offer our deepest condolences to Allysson, his family, and to all the affected racers of Brazil and the world. Allysson was a remarkable young individual and a rising star among the Brazilian downhill community. His sportsmanship and passion to skate were evident through everyone he touched with his life.
