It's true

I volunteer for the MBU, and we were told he did just that, on the last little "hot dog" section along side the fire road, almost to the end.
A real drag.

I never rode that part.

I walked it and even then I almost killed myself. Well I didn't die, but I did bonk from the effort I had to exert to hike/bike the trail. Lay down on Sullivan Ridge and waited for the ice cream van.

(thank you whoever you were that gave me food :) )

Sullivan can get dangerous after the rains.

That link is for the fatal incident on Westridge, not Sullivan Canyon as the original poster mentioned.

Perhaps the original poster meant Westridge then. Adam Don died at the scene from breaking his neck in several places after crashing on the landing.

There were flowers placed there a couple weeks ago when I rode by.

Are you referring to the death of Adam Don on Westridge, the trail to above Sullivan Canyon? I haven't heard of any deaths in Sullivan itself.

Adam crashed after taking the jump on Westridge where the singletrack and fireroad come together. He attempted to jump the berm that lead back up to the singletrack section.

There is an extensive thread over on socalmtb.com with post from those who found him.
