Motocross legend and former Trade Kingpin Dave Bickers passed away yesterday.

A post on Dave's son, Paul Bickers', Facebook page reads:

'It is with great sadness that I am announcing the passing of my father Dave Bickers. He left us peacefully early this morning 6th July. All of his family at his side. His daughter Andrea is making it back from Brisbane Australia just in time to be with rest of the family.

The stroke was very severe and he could not win the fight against the damage caused. We plan to have a celebration of his life in the not too distant future.

Details of this will follow when arrangements have been made.'
