Leading MX2 World Championship rider Rene Hofer has died after being caught up in an avalanche in Austria that also killed two of his friends.

The youngster – aged 19-years old – was on an off-season skiing trip with seven friends in the Austrian mountains near Salzburg when an avalanche began and struck the party of 11.

Sky reports they were swept up by a 200m slab of snow that had shifted, collecting five of the skiers, including Hofer. Though two escaped, three wouldn’t survive despite the efforts of rescue teams.

Hofer was considered one of Motocross’ most promising competitors to be coming through the ranks after sweeping to multiple junior titles prior to his move into MX2.
