07-Jul-2014 • Bond News

Motocross legend and James Bond stuntman Dave Bickers has died from a stroke aged 76, reports the BBC.

Before he became a stuntman, he won two consecutive European championships in the 1960.

In 1976, he started his own TV film and stunt company and had his first brush with 007 working behind the scenes on 'For Your Eyes Only' in 1981 before getting on screen doubling as Roger Moore in the 1983 film 'Octopussy'.

After also working on the rogue production 'Never Say Never Again', Bickers took a break from Bond until 'GoldenEye' in 1995 and worked on every film since until 'Skyfall' in 2012.

Dave Bickers lived in Coddenham, Suffolk, and died on 6th July 2014.
