It sure is a sad day. I was only able to see Doug perform once a long time ago. I remember the day well. I was at the 1987 MotoCross Des Nations at Unadilla. It was raining like hell and the mud was deep when it was announced that Doug would attempt to Wheelie all the way around the track. You could feel the excitement in the air as Doug Wheelied his way around the track. The image of Doug Wheelieing over the edge of Gravity Cavity in the mud will be etched in my mind forever.



God Speed Doug. You will be missed.

Yet another lost. Our sport seems to suffer another blow each week.

Godspeed in the next life

I am very saddened by the news that Doug Domokos

is dead. I saw him in 1979 when he came to Australia. The man was incredible, I will keep his

book and every mono from now on will be in

his honour. My deepest sympathies to his family.

The Wheelie King's name is actually DOMOKOS

not Domokas, sorry to be petty, however it

is important i think.

That's what I remember Doug for. I remember seeing him on TV, wheelying that big KZ1300 monster out of a parking lot, down the street, up an on-ramp, and off he went down the freeway, all on one wheel. I thought that was just too cool.

I'm so glad I got to speak with Doug over the telephone a couple of months ago and get one of the last books he had on the art of wheelies. This book is great and I encourage any of you wanting to learn wheelies to send an email to his website and get one before they're all gone. There will never be another "wheelie king" and I know he'll be missed by many. Let's pray for his wife Michelle and son Nicholas(2 yrs old). Their grief this holiday season is unimaginable. There has also been a fund set up for little Nicholas. You can get the info from Doug's website www.thewheelieking.com Let's not let the memory of Doug soon fade.
