Jul. 31—The Boulder County Coroner’s Office has identified the motorcyclist who tragically lost his life after colliding with a tandem bicycle as Brent Long.

Long, a 58-year-old resident of Ward, was pronounced dead at the scene on Saturday. The accident occurred on Lefthand Canyon Drive when Long’s motorcycle collided with the eastbound tandem bicycle.

According to Colorado State Patrol Trooper Gabriel Moltrer, the incident took place at approximately 12:08 p.m. near Spring Gulch Road, northwest of Gold Hill. Long, who was heading westbound on Lefthand Canyon Drive, veered across the center line, resulting in the collision.
