英语原文：BMX has lost one of its best : COLIN WINKELMANN, who rides for DK Bicycles, has killed himself.
Winkelmann took his own life in his own home on early Friday morning, death by carbon monoxide using his chopper. The supposed cause was a fight with his fiance.
Winkelmann was most recently in System Cycles "SYSTEM" DVD. Colin Winkelmann is up with more big tricks than you can shake a stick at and footage of the crazy moving box jump that put him in the wheel chair.
Jim Bauer of ODYSSEY has confirmed the internet rumors which surfaced around bmx forums in the last day or so.
Here is a clip of Colin Winkelmanns longest BMX jump:

Colin is known for his big style. He typically does huge gaps and huge transfers during his runs. Unfortunately, Colin is also known for his constant ACL problems. In early 2002, Colin had surgery similar to Mat Hoffmans in which a synthetic ligament was grafted into his left knee
