    Caleb MooreRenowned ATV and snowmobile freestyler Caleb Moore has died from injuries he suffered in a crash at the Winter X Games a week ago.

    The 25-year-old Moore was knocked unconscious in the crash and was evaluated for a concussion and other injuries. While he was being evaluated, it was discovered that he was bleeding around the heart and was airlifted to Grand Junction, Colo. for emergency heart surgery. A couple of days later doctors discovered a secondary complication involving his brain. Moore was unable to recover from his injuries and passed away Thursday morning.

    “He will be truly missed and never forgotten,” the Moore family said in a statement. “The family wishes to express their deep gratitude for all the prayers and support they have received from all the fans, friends and family around the world that Caleb has inspired.”

      Blake Shipman Films - Caleb MooreIt’s been a little while since we checked in to see what ATV video guru Blake Shipman has been up to. Turns out he’s been busy and has three new ATV videos already released in April.

      Shipman’s most recent release features freestyle king Caleb Moore killing it at the Little Sahara Sand Dunes in Utah in his RZR XP 900 and what appears to be an old TRX450R. Few ATV riders seem more comfortable with all four wheels off the ground than Moore.

        We showed you a teaser in October, but it’s finally happened. Caleb Moore pulled off the world’s forst UT backflip to dirt.

        Moore, who teamed up with All Terrain Research and Rockstar Energy Drink, took his Polaris RZR where none had ever gone before at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Xperience in Las Vegas, Nev. on Nov. 2, 2011.

        Moore attempted the flip three times. The first time he came up short landed nose first on top of the landing ramp. On his second attempt Moore pretty much landed it, but came down fairly hard on the front wheels. It was the third attempt where the magic happened and the RZR came down on all four wheels.
