Hi guys,

bit of a long shot, but have any of you heard from him? Was supposed to be racing yesterday and his missus hasn't heard from him since and his phone is off

    Alex Kaiser

    Hi all, Alex was due to be racing yesterday at Rheola (I think) and he hasn't returned home, and his phone isn't on. Last contact was on Saturday at 16:30. Please can you confirm whether he did the race/when you last saw him, if at all? Thanks, Sarah (fiancee). 07881 834 112.

  • Hopefully he's just found the nobbers who nicked the Edison and is now at a lockup somewhere issuing some medieval punishments.

    Fingers crossed for a safe return.

    Hope he's OK. Had a quick google of the Rheola race yesterday: not sure if this helps but here's a table of results:

    Apparently the police are now invovled. He did the practice on Saturday but didn't turn up for the race on Sunday.

    Hope he's okay, very worrying :(

    Hope Alex is ok, hopefully we'll get good news soon to say he's back safe and well, may be he's just fallen gently into a ravine and is currently having a 'Flight of the Navigator' experience

    Check him for small, cute extra terrestrial beings when he's back

    Seriously though thoughts are with him and his fiance today as I'm sure all of ours are and praying for some good news very soon

    The Dirt website re-tweeted his other half's message, so it should be getting a fair bit of coverage:

    Alex Kaiser (posts here as 'Kaise') - CC regular face and all-round top-bloke. Like a few here, I've had the pleasure of riding with him, and he is f**king good company.

    RIP :(

    :(

    Bad news according to the rider down trust.

    From their twitter: "Alex has been found but unfortunately had passed away in his sleep. RIP ALEX KAISER and love to Sarah and his family"


    Horrible, horrible news :( As said above, I'm sure we're all thinking of his fiancee and family.

    That's absolutely terrible news! I'm so sorry to hear it.

    Never met the guy, but just knowing him on this forum I could tell he was a good guy.

    RIP :(

    As above, never met him, but fudge me that's awful! He seemed like a top top bloke from what I knew on here.

    Quite scary too. Big time sad face today now.

    censored hell. Properly gutted about that, only met him a couple of times but he was a top bloke, both on here and in the real world.

    RIP Kaise :(

    I'm absolutely gutted, I met him for the first time just a few weeks ago, my thoughts and condolences go out to all his family :-(
  • YeehaaMcgeeYeehaaMcgee Posts: 5,740
    Wow, that really is bad news. Thoughts go out to those he left behind.
  • AbraAbra Posts: 338
    Wow.... that’s shocking news. I'm sure the guy will be sadly missed.

    My thoughts are going out to his friends and family.

    The sun rises and the sun sets.
    We comfort ourselves through the darkness with the thought it will rise again.

    But tomorrow won't be as bright a day.

    RIP Kaise.

  • SquarepantsSquarepants Posts: 1,019
    This is devastating news. I never met Alex but we had semi arranged a ride at Cwmcarn, he was gonna get a few snaps of us riding etc.

    Along with everyone else my thoughts are with Sarah and the family. Makes you realise how fragile life is.
