ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

It is with deep regret that I have to announce the death of a member of the downhill community, and a special friend.

Sue Wickenden was riding Mt Cootha this morning with a multi-discipline group of riders when she failed to negotiate a bend in the road. It appears she has gone under the guard rail and has died at the scene.

My thoughts are with her family (especially her son Ben), her partner (Brad Sterritt) and all her many friends, especially those who were with her this morning.

Sue died, as I would like to, doing what she loved.

RIP Sue, may there be many great roads to ride wherever you are and may they all be smooth as silk.

Arran and Fin, Naccos

On behalf of Brad, and at Brad's request, I would like to express Brad's deepest gratitude at the support and love coming from within the gravity community. He is totally aware of the messages and posts being expressed here, even though he hasn't been able to see them for himself. He said he will thank everyone over the next couple of days, however he wanted everyone to know how much the messages have supported him at this time.


I am deeply shocked and my thoughts are with all those who knew Sue.
The passion she brought to the sport inspired so many and encouraged so many to take action.
Sue was a great role model and always offered her help to those who needed it.
It is easy to forget that a sport that can bring such joy and happiness has the power to bring such heartache and sadness.
However to leave this world surrounded by friends and doing what you love is ideal.

I send my condolences to all of you who knew Sue, especially her family. Ride safe.

We will miss Sue so much. Our thoughts are with Sue's family, Ben and Brad and especially the QLD crew who were there with her. Anyone who met her will remember her cheerful smile and contagious laugh. She was such a gorgeous Lady of Luge.

Sue you will always be a part of the downhill community. You will always be part of us. Rest in peace.

Simon and Leah xoxo.
