AUSTRALIA, NORTHERN TERRITORY, ALICE SPRINGS. It is with deep sadness that KAJX.NET reports the passing of 2017 Finke Desert Race Champion Daymon Stokie. Details are sketchy at the moment, Adelaide’s the Advertiser has published the following:

“A COMPETITOR in the Deep Well Enduro Race has been killed while racing.

Daymon Stokie, who won the Finke Desert Race last year, was killed while racing on the endurance race.

St John Ambulance spokesman Craig Garraway said the accident occurred mid-afternoon on Saturday.

“It appears the rider was racing in the enduro race when he came off his bike,” Mr Garraway said.

“He suffered traumatic injuries and was treated at the scene by the volunteer paramedics.

“The St John Ambulance critical response unit attended the scene but the 28-year-old was declared deceased after he had gone into cardiac arrest.”

Mr Stokie has been remembered on Facebook as an all-around good guy.

“He was a lovely young man, gone too soon,” Andrew Gillam posted.

“The only positive to take out of something like this is that he went doing what he loved.”

Mr Stokie was originally from Naracoorte in South Australia.”
