Now Closed: Halo Wheels & YT Industries Announce Custom Jordie Lunn Bike Raffle in His Memory

by Halo Wheels  

Raffle now closed. The raffle raised a total of $25,080.00. All proceeds of this raffle will go towards charitable causes that Jordie Lunn believed in so that his memory will live on.

Words: Halo Wheels

Canadian born rider, Jordie Lunn had a varied career starting out as a successful DH racer later moving his focus to freeride. His raw talent led him to star in films such as 'Ride to the Hills', 'The Collective' and ‘ROAM’, alongside competing at Crankworx, Red Bull Rampage and almost every other pioneering freeride mountain bike event.

In recent years Jordie moved his attention to his own video projects such as the 'Rough AF' series alongside appearing at Fest Series, Rampage and many others.

Jordie was due to start work on the new 'Rough AF4' video upon his return from a trip to Mexico. Sadly, Jordie passed away on October 9th 2019, following a crash while trail riding in Cabo San Lucas.

There had been lots of communication between Jordie and his many sponsors before his trip about a one-off designed bike and jersey to feature in the video, which would complement his intimidating appearance, gentle nature, and Canadian roots.

Following Jordie's untimely passing, both his family and sponsors felt creating this bike and jersey in memory of Jordie would be a fitting tribute and a fantastic opportunity to raise funds to support matters that were close to his heart. These will include, but may not be limited to; helping children with cycling and coaching opportunities, cycling facilities, supporting brain health and injury research to help avoid further losses in sport and funding research to better understand post-concussion brain injuries.

Jordie Lunn Bike Raffle

bigquotesJordie was fortunate enough in his career to be supported by many amazing companies. The creation of this bike through the cooperation of these companies during this difficult time has been extremely special to our family. Jordie would have been so stoked to see this bike get made; his 2018 ‘neon fade’ Rampage bike was among his most prized possessions.

The support for our family since his passing has been incredible. Your donations have relieved much of the financial pressures from hospital bills, transport costs, and funeral expenses.

The proceeds of this raffle will go towards charitable causes that Jordie believed in so that his memory will live on.

We are extremely thankful to all those involved in the creation of this bike and all who want to celebrate the life of my beloved brother.

Both the bike and jersey have now been realised and are pieces of mountain biking history, as the last project that Jordie had an influence on. This is your opportunity to own both Jordie's bike and jersey.

Alongside the creation of this bike and jersey, many sponsors have made private donations to support Jordie's family and their wishes at this difficult time.

As Jordie's family, friends, fans and sponsors, we are hugely grateful for any donation in Jordie’s memory.

 Watching Jordie's last steed being built up is oh so bitter sweet. Honestly better than any compilation video of his riding. Just quiet reflection on how much of an impact Jordie had on or sport as a whole and what he ment to so many. Somber yet respectful to his memory. Well done to his sponsors for doing this final tribute to Jordie for his family, friends and the legions of dirtbag fans. Yes there is onions watching a bike being built and no shame about it. Thanks for all you gave while here Jordie. Rest easy.

 I hope whoever wins this bike rides it hard in Jordie’s name. It would be a shame if this bike lived its whole life hanging on a wall. RIP.

 I was about to say the same thing, if you don't ride the fuck outa this bike until it has no choice but to retired on the wall, then you didn't respectfully do your deed..

 @vjunior21: wouldn't it be ironic if they tried to do that and then died of a riding injury?

 @thesharkman: I think you have ironic and tragic mixed up.

 Entered, I'd ride it sideways till the wheels fall off, then rebuild it, then give it to a younger shredder when I'm unfit.

 Jordie Lunn singed my Trek session at proving grounds in Oregon. I don't think ill ever let this bike go.

 @OlSkoolJake:he is confusing "ironic" with "coincidentally". But your edit is still better.

 I'm out here studying for finals, take a quick study break and see this. I start watching and one of the boys asking why you getting misty eyed and I show him. The boys proceed to put it on the project and watch the bike be built in silence...

 So happy to see this happening. I will never the day Jordie taught me how to flip, or the day I almost hit him while doing a flip years later. Got a tattoo from his brother last week, and tickets bought. Knowing Jord and his family, to see all this support is amazing #livelikejordie

 Amazing build. On a side note, a true shop worker. You can tell by the hockey tape bandage.

 Haha a common theme on so many dream build series mechanics

 The last shot of it left in the work stand makes it all the more emotional as it should never be left hanging in a work stand. It feels like Jordie should walk into shot and take the bike one last time.

 This is so great to see!! A great cause for a great man! You are missed Jordie!! Ride in peace brother. #jordielunnforever.

 I may have purchased a large amount of tickets, but it's not about the bike. It's about what Jordie represented simply by being himself, and the aggro potential in all of us. ...that, and it might be a little about the bike.

 This one still hurts my heart. Not really sure why, but I felt like he was a friend, even though I only had two brief encounters with him. He was a great human and I still shed tears for this loss.

 Whoever wins this needs to build and film Rough AF4! It would be the only proper way to pay tribute to Jordie with this bike.

 @mtbikemccoy: I think that would be about a 4-5 second video! Maybe 15 if you had a good intro.

 Very poignant soundtrack to go with it. Never before been close to crying while watching a bike being built..

 Jordie was in front of us at LooseFest in Malmedy, shouting at a young kid trying to jump as long as possible. Mountain Biking is also a dangerous sport.

 Yet another raffle where however I input my data it says my details don't match my billing address. Never a problem with any of the European online shops or even the local government... only these American donation pages. So frustrating as I'd like to take part.

 I'll be your proxy if you can't get it sorted by Jan 31. We'll put your name as company name to distinguish it is your entry not mine should it be drawn.

 I honestly feel like we should rename Stevie Smith Bikepark to something like Jordie Lunn & Stevie Smith Bikepark. To commemorate the legends from Vancouver island.

 All ticket quantities are showing "out of stock" and can't be purchased at this time. I'm guessing the deadline isn't actually the 31st at 3 PM PST?

 Sweet ride. I kind of wish it was a Capra with a coil (like the one he took to Peru and still had in his quiver). I'd get more ride time out of a Capra, but I think the Tues is more fitting in his memory.

Hope the winner doesn't baby it. Jordie would want the winner to ride it.
