Tragic end in search for missing enduro biker

Facebook


An enduro biker, who went missing on Saturday while competing in the Lilyfontein Funduro race outside East London, has been found deceased.

The body of 37-year-old Nick Klingelhoeffer was found on the route early on Wednesday morning.

His bike was found lying nearby.

Klingelhoeffer was last seen entering the second lap of the enduro route at the weekend and the alarm was raised when he did not clock in at the finish.

A large-scale search, which involved search and rescue personnel and the police K9 unit, had been looking for him ever since.

Police Warrant Officer Majola Nkohli told AlgoaFM News that Klingelhoeffer's body was found by a farmworker.

It would appear that Klingelhoeffer was killed in a crash while competing in the Funduro.

Nkohli said police had opened an inquest docket and that a post-mortem would be carried out to determine the cause of death.

Klingelhoeffer was a local resident from Buffalo City.
