Kevin "K-Rob" Robinson Passes Away

BNQT has confirmed that BMX superstar Kevin Robinson died Saturday morning of a stroke.

Known to his fans as “K-Rob”, Kevin held multiple X Games gold medals and was a crowd favorite as he soared high above crowds on his BMX bike.

Now retired from the X Games, Robinson was still working for ESPN as an analyst and traveling around the northeast inspiring future generations of youth through community school programs.

He was also known for his work for Rhode Island-based charities, including his K-Rob Foundation.
