(CNN) – Irresponsible Alex Harvill died Thursday while training to break the world record for jumping on a motorcycle ramp, Washington state officials said. He is 28 years old.
“Our condolences to Alex’s family, friends and loved ones,” Grand County Coroner Craig Morrison said in a written statement Thursday.
Alex Harville, who lives in Efrata, Washington, said he hoped to break the 106-meter jump record, according to the Moses Lake Airshow.
A video of the practice jump at Grand County International Airport, posted on social media, shows Harville’s motorcycle running straight over the top edge of a large land curve. You can see in the video how Alex Harville is thrown off the motorcycle.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, he attempted to break the record set by Robbie Madison of Australia on March 29, 2008.
Alex Harville has already set his own Guinness World Record for jumping 90 meters in 2013 from a dirt curve.
“Coroner Morrison’s staff will conduct an autopsy Friday to confirm the cause and method of death, which is normal practice,” the Grand County Sheriff’s Office said.
