Really terrible to hear this news, Ross was a great guy who always had time to talk to you and ask how things were going.
I first remember him in the early 90s when he rode for Invert, he had such a good style and never looked like he was trying but always was up at the front. Really good to watch on a bike and one of the nicest, laid back guys off it.
Condolences to all his family

This is horrible news. I didn't know Ross really well but he was always a real nice kid and an unreal rider. Definately an inspiration to us all.

My best wishes and deepest condolences to Ross' family.

RIP Ross

So sad that Ross has gone. Linds, Shirley, Bill my thoughts are with you....I have so many amazing memories with Ross that will never leave me. Ross was the first person that I ever really looked upto, for so many years I tried to be like him, look like him and ride like him.....Kye and myself would come home from school and be so excited because one of us had had a Ross Hill spotting..........You will be missed my friend....And as you would of said to me 'TAKE IT EASY' ...Toby

so so sad. I was in Ross's age group, and when I read his name on the moto sheets I knew I wouldn't be winning the race!

One rad rider, one nice guy!

RIP Ross

Condolences to all his family

Ross is remembered way back to the early days at Newton Abbot race course. The first time I saw Ross he was riding his race bike with skinney wheels down the gradstands steps much to the dismay of Bill! Ross was the original rebel. He was one of the first to take on and beat David Maw winning the Brits at Derby Stadium. An inspiration to many and always a leader in style.

Very sorry at such a sad loss. Condolences to Bill, Shirley, Adam and Lyndsay.

The words that come to my mind when thinking of Ross are unique, talented, honest, loyal, crazy, sincere, funny.... so many things. I'm the youngest in my family, but through the 90's age of bmx, Ross and his soul mate mad al were like my younger brothers- energetic, mischievous, comical.... and still great friends when the bmx bike wasn't their main priority as they embraced the wide world of adulthood responsibility. And still they both inspired me with their can do it approach to life, as they had on their bikes; 'bmxers can do anything'. Ross, your name on my ringing mobile or face at my door always brought a smile to my face, and the memories of you still will do. I witnessed your transition from a young teen to a mature man, and what a tribute you were to Shirley and Bill. And to see you and Linds together was a true delight, love reflected by love. I'm just thankful to have known you, and the great times we shared. Here's another thread for anyone that's interested- ... 319.0.html Tim.

ross, remember that time at the bournemouth National when we chatted for the first time properly, when you were all grown up, wearing jeans running 46'16 and looking so fast and kick ass. you just ripped that track up like a motocross kid, open face lid, bars back, big smile, seat pointing up, low down. that day i wished i could have been as carefree as you seemed to live your life, every lap you rode i watched and wondered at the beauty of youth and carefree days. when we are touched by another and feel their llife force it has an affect that cannot be put into words but thankfully can be felt for a lifetime. soul brother, life rider, tear ass, kick ass groover. rest in peace kid. your sun still shines in me.

all of the march family send our love. xxx
