On October 9, 2019 legendary Canadian freerider and all around amazing human Jordie Lunn died after a crash while trail riding in Mexico. Although his time in the hospital was brief, his family is expecting significant medical bills, on top of the costs associated with getting Jordie's body back home to Parksville, Canada. Jordie had personal injury and life insurance through Combined Insurance, but because the accident happened out of country, there are greater expenses.

To help with these costs, a Road 2 Recovery fundraiser has been set up in Jordie's memory. The foundation’s page notes that any excess funds after the medical and logistical costs have been met will be used in Jordie's name to provide help in avenues that Jordie was passionate about, including helping children with cycling and coaching opportunities, bike facilities, helping establish baseline concussion testing for athletes worldwide, supporting brain health and injury research in mountain biking, and funding research to better understand the health of athletes' brains post concussion in the hope of avoiding further losses.




Jordie’s family also wanted to thank any and all of the companies and people who have supported Jordie throughout his entire career. Jordie’s current sponsors are Rockstar Energy, YT Industries, Strikt Gear, SRAM, RockShox, Endur Apparel, Space Brace, Kali Protectives, Vee Tire, Halo Wheels, SDG Components, Sensus Grips, FiveTen, Deity Components, Spy Optics, Wicked Audio, and Arrowsmith Bikes.


About the Road 2 Recovery Foundation
The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2000 to help AMA-licensed motocross and supercross professionals and action sports athletes with financial assistance after sustaining career-ending injuries as well as providing motivational, emotional and spiritual support to these individuals and their families.

 I get that medical bills add up right before some people pass away, but that debt should NOT burden the family. It's so sad. I have no idea how a system would be created that stopped this, but it would be great. We just got life insurance for everyone in my family, and getting it for my almost 3-year-old for this reason was saddening and sickening.

 Dude that process absolutely gutted me. Just thinking about losing my kids... damn dude. I actually couldn't make myself get the insurance for a couple years because I couldn't allow myself to even think about it. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and walk over my daughters crip and I'd literally have to lay a hand on her just so I knew she was o.k. She'll never know that but I did. A lot. But yeah. Definitely agree. The medical system is so jacked up. They charge so much freaking money that they should have plenty of money to cover the cost of people that go through this type of thing. One of the problems is that for those directly effected or even those like us that are on the outer limits...we go... damn... screw that. But then you stop and think about how often this happens.... how many people are completely fine one moment and in the hospital morgue the next.... financially its astronomical. And reality is... a lot fo these athletes are on the most basic insurance because it's not cheap and it's not like these guys are making millions of dollars. Fortunately through all of this, Jordie's family will have a tremendous amount of support and people will come together to help with this. His sponsors, fans, friends, the foundations that are built to help with this stuff. Etc. Still crazy to think about... this dude is leaving such a massive hole in so many hearts. We should look at him and this and all try to be those type of people.

 We call it socialism. Jordie would have been covered if he was in Canada as a Canadian, it's unfortunate that it happened in Mexico as I don't imagine insurance companies are jumping at the opportunity to insure professional free riders riding internationally though.

 getting the child rider for my children as weird as it sounds was a financial decision more than anything. it was a stupid cheap cost for the payout. i could write the check if i had to, but why not spend a few bucks and have someone else do it.

 @b-mcclelland: - His BC medical insurance will pay for all services received up to the cost for equivalent services in BC. Mexican healthcare costs are quite reasonable so a lot of those costs will be covered. They will have to pay those bills first and then submit to the BC Government for reimbursement.

 It would be very easy to create a system to stop this. Its called public health insurance. Problem is no one wants to pay for it. Bills can't just go away. Someone has to either pay for it or the provider eats the cost.

 @Trailmaster12: at the end of the day someone will pay for it. It doesn’t just disappear. If you made a law that said that the bills don’t have to be paid if a patient dies then doctors and hospitals would be forced raise the overall price of care to make up for all those expected losses. And that added cost would then just be pushed down to everyone else through more expensive care and higher insurance premiums.

 @likeittacky: That might lead to the horrible situation where someone would want to die rather than face bankruptcy.

IMHO There is no way in a civilised country that someone should face financial ruin because of accident or illness.

 @ybsurf: I travelled to the US 2 years ago, visited Google HQs for a project, went biking in Marin county and in SantaCruz, got drunk at the nearby bar with some factory workers. But definitely took an insurance!

The hospital cost for foreigners is always a problem in case of crash. I helped a swiss DH riders who crashed in french Morzine, he had to call his insurance to see if he could use a local ambulance :-)

 @brentkratz: you literally just defined socialism.
“The term socialism refers to any system in which the production and distribution of goods and services is a shared responsibility of a group of people.”

 @mtnbykr05: There is a big difference between a socialist government and a government which has some socialist programs (pretty much all countries do). Canada has a socialist heath care system, but that does make it a socialist government. Just like programs like Medicare, social security, etc don’t make the US a socialist country. Pretty much anything that is publicly funded is based on a socialist principal. Anything your tax money pays for would be based on socialist principals. Roads, bridges, Public transportation, libraries, public school systems, Etc.

 @sino428: I know that and I'm not an idiot. The same argument could be made the other way though. "Canada isn't capitalist because it has socialist programs". Both the US and Canada have a fairly balanced system, with Canada leaning a little more socialist than the US. But @brentkratz blatantly said Canada is not socialist, but then tried to support such claim by describing a socialistic program verbatim.
You could pretty much say Canada is a constitutional monarchy with socialistic tendencies and the US is a republic with capitalistic tendencies. So to someone within the US and those in a much more authoritarian state, it could appear that Canada is a very socialistic country.

 @mtnbykr05: I never said you were an idiot. Sorry if you took what I was saying the wrong way. My comment was not really a direct response to you, but in reference to the entire thread of comment leading up to it. One guy was saying Canada was socialist, then a guy responded that it isn't (while also pointing out its socialist health care system) which you correctly called him out on. I was really trying to further your point, not counter it.

 @Trailmaster12: Why, because the way that it is set up, the medical industry is run like racket by a Mob.
Its a big circle of gangsters; that manipulate the way the system collects, and sucks people financially dry of their life and savings anyway. The cost of all medical supplies, the machines you describe and just the time to occupy a bed or an ambulance ride are astronomical and shouldn't be.

Insurance enables the Hospitals to charge and make far more money than a service is actually worth or should be. The individual that has passed will not be the one taking care of the bill and that can be then the responsibility of Family.

Why do you think someone that maybe has retired and has their own medical bills possibly to pay and whatever else, now be suddenly burden by such an outstanding bill to pay off?

Let the hospital right it off FUK EM! Because if not they will FUK Your surviving family.

 being an engineer/machinist I haven't read about socialism and don't completely understand what it is, but "socialist" or "capitalist" or whatever else you like to call it, universal gov't health care would make a lot of sense in the U.S. given how much leverage the drug companies have on us poor bastards. Anyone wondering why the U.S. spends so much on medical care, it's since the U.S. gov't can't legally negotiate drug prices at the moment which is horse shit. I even trust elected officials to manage finances in our medical system over the dumbass bazillionaires setting arbitrary prices for our tax dollars to pay

 @Coldspringer: 'the road to serfdom' by hayek is solid starting point. Unfortunately too many arent well read and can get caught up in the here and now(pop culture)...socialism will always fail, proven by history.
  • 1 0
 @jrocksdh: Hayek is a good read. Problem is, his writing is well crafted political philosophy, and as such pretty big picture. When that collides with the reality of markets, and more importantly market failures such as externalities, natural monopolies, etc, then heading closely to the philosophy without some pragmatic adjustments will cause ridiculous problems.

Health Care is one of those areas that beautifully illustrates that. Because of all sorts of market power assymmetries and social contract issues, truly market based health care is a clusterf#ck none of us want to live with.

Look at all the countries you might consider living in (high standards of living, rule of law, economic opportunity, personal freedom, etc.) and think of them all as experiments in trying to square that circle with various degrees of govt intervention in that market. Then look at outcomes (cost to consumers, health measures, ability for consumers to manage risk, externalities paid for by the rest of society, regulatory capture allowing inefficiencies benefitting incumbent rent seekers, etc) and draw your own conclusions - but not one of those experiments has so far produced a successful truly capitalist health care system. That should be food for thought...

 @b-mcclelland: Haha - over beers for sure! But - we have capitalism and private ownership, and the gov't does not control the means of production and distribution of goods, therefore not socialist government. We see certain programs as so fundamental to society that they should be covered for all by all - maybe individually a socialist tendancy but that does not make us a socialist country (as sino428 says below).

 @mtnbykr05: A socialist tendancy of one program does not make a socialist system of government. Is USA socialist because education is covered by gov't or roads and sewers covered by gov't!?

 Important! Depending on the hospital/insurance/local legislation (e.g. US, amazingly), only Jordie's "estate" would be liable for the medical bills, not the family. Someone should make sure the family checks to see that is/isn't the case. A lot of families accidentally assume liability for the debt because the hospital and insurer tell them they are because they want to be paid, but it's not actually the case. Would hate to see that be the case for the Lunns.

 I dont really understand how his insurance doesn't relieve him from all those expenses. My insurance covers all emergency care world wide, even if the accident was due to a downhill accident. It also covers emergency rescue ( helicopter), flight back home with air ambulance ( if needed) and transportation of the diseased. This is just a normal travel insurance that more or less everyone in Sweden has when traveling abroad - so how come a Canadian involved in high risk activites doesn´t?

 Didn't we just start discussing medical cost for riders a few days ago as it related the Brook Macdonald? I hope this is the eye opener for the riders to demand their sponsors pay enough to assist in coverage. Like this scenario, pro riders go all over the world and push the limits for our entertainment and market products. The companies that benefit should be involved in ensuring the riders are covered.
  • 4 0
 Part of the problem is that most insurance plans, even good ones don't cover everything. There are deductibles, co-insurances, & out pocket cost that the patient is responsible for even with a good plan. And with a serious injury all those costs, even with good coverage still can add up to a big amount. So even if the companies offered insurance, it still may not be enough to completely avoid situations like this.

 Always buy travel insurance. Whether it's for work, leisure, or gnar, totally worth it if you're going to be remote or international
  • 2 0
 @sino428:
I have no real clue of the options of insurance but I image there are options to at least buffer the high cost of these scenarios. I think the sponsors need to get involved with independent & factory sponsors riders and indicate a part of the sponsorship agreement is to carry insurance...especially when travelling. Either the cost is incurred by the sponsor or by the rider but the agreement states "No insurance No sponsorship." It would be the best for both parties as the riders will have something to assist with unforeseen issues and the sponsors will not have negative backlash from the public such as "Where are you sponsors?" such as in this scenario.

I will add that I am not trying to tread on Jordie's story. This man is/was an inspiration to us all and the family will forever be without this greatness in their lives. I think it is a matter that can used as a start to "How do the riders, sponsors, and industry ensure that these athletes are cared for if something goes wrong."
  • 2 0
 @vjunior21: Well that's kind of my point. Insurance does buffer the high cost, which would be astronomical in situations of serious injury if there were no insurance. A serious injury could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and even if the insurance pays most of that, the patient could still be on the hook for what ends up being a very significant amount of money. As with any job, benefits like health insurance are part of the compensation that needs to be considered. Since these guys all negotiate their own deal its on them and their sponsors to negotiate that into the contracts. It would be nice to make stuff like insurance mandatory but who would enforce it when each rider is basically independent to negotiate their own deals?

 @Mntneer: the sponsors always get slagged, but it’s the insurance companies that make good insurance untraceable for many athletes. Next time you travel tell the insuring company that you’re a professional in the sport and will be filming/working/raving while travelling. Just watch how much the cost jumps, if they’ll even cover you.

 @Mntneer: I’ve travelled with insurance many times. Every time I’ve been told if riding or racing as a pro or in a competition, even amateur, I wouldn’t be able to buy regular travel coverage and make a claim. The amount of restrictions and limitations on travel insurance is ridiculous. Consider many of them have clauses stating that if you don’t contact the company before receiving treatment the benefit may be reduced, even if the treatment would actually have been fully covered. So lying mangled on the side of a trail your supposed to call a lie across before the heli picks you up? Regardless, my point is that people should stop slagging sponsors, there’s many more complications to getting support through insurance than who is paying the premium.

 How cool would it be if Rockstar(etc.) said something like---"Jordie was such a HUGE presence, and such an awesome guy in the mountain biking world, and the world in general, that we didn't want his family to suffer anymore than they already have, so we have decided to absorb any of Jordies medical costs... it just seems like the right thing to do"!

 @nismo325: Well, from my perspective, if, as a sponsor, you use an athlete's image to sell your product, there is a part of responsibility that you and I may not support. There are no objective reasons to feel obliged to compensate a situation where we have very little to do. If I take part of the donation, this will be on a freewill basis in the memory of Jordie and for his family.

 I believe R2R makes a percentage of the donations? I sure wish we could have just started a gofundme or something on pinkbike alone, PB readers could have generated that $100k overnight.

 Just a curious administrative question- was his hospital expense accrued in Mexico or did he get evacuated to a US facility? I would worry if they had a body as collateral a country could add some significant pressure to see to it that a bill is (in some capacity) paid or an intent is made to do so... otherwise one could likely just walk away from a Mexican hospital bill without them having much recourse.

 Not sure what coverage Jordie had for out of country travel insurance but It's critical to read the fine print and ask questions and explain what activities you're undertaking. Since Rampage is here shortly this article puts things in perspective?

 The costs for coverage is cheap through BCAA, a multi-trip- 30day max is 100-200$ PER YEAR, but it depends on your age as well. The pro rider coverage is another $40/yr and if you have a known injury or medical condition add on $20. So for around $250 bucks you can ride, compete and damage your body to a value of $10 million in coverage. So why risk it all for the little rewards these contests may hand out to the winners while the losers could go home broke for life? Just get complete medical coverage and ride smart.
I wrote this piece back in 2014 and since Rampage is around the corner it sheds light on coverage for riders. Link to PB

 Out of interest I went and looked at a policy I had of recent travel insurance that I purposely looked for when travelling to the States to make sure I'd be covered Mountain Biking. I was surprised how much I had to look to *make sure* a policy listed mountain biking - noting that any competition was not allowed. They certainly have some grey areas in "you're not covered if...." that if they wanted to weasel out of coverage they could give it a go.

Looking at the limits it had $50k NZD coverage for accidental death, and unlimited medical expenses. Kinda grey if what happens if you required lots of treatment then passed away. Is it unlimited? or is it capped at 50k?..... If it's 50kNZD (30k USD).. that wouldn't go far at all.

Obviously not commenting at all on the specifics for the family, but I can see how very easy it would be to get caught out on this or think you're covered and not, or an a-hole insurance company weaseling out.

 @steveshannon: if he had travel/medical insurance that would be to cover him abroad.That's the point of medical insurance when you travel. yes, i understand there are probably limitations.

 I have much respect for what Jordie was doing and for his input in development of freeride, but... I also travel a lot. I don’t throw myself down a tree, or do backflips in the middle of the desert. Still everytime I go abroad (even for sightseeing) I buy myself an insurance, which covers medical treatment and in worst case transport of the body back home. I have an employer, who pays me every month for my work, but I’m sure he wouldn’t pay a single penny if I had an accident (no matter if business related or not).
So back to Jordi’s case - he had sponsors, who were paying him for his dangerous job. It was his responsibility to take care of himself and get insured. Unfortunately looks like he didn’t, which is sad.
This should be (another) warning for the pro athletes, to act like a pro and take care of potential risks, which are huge in this sport.
