Who is Jeremy Durst Life Story
Jeremy Durst, 30, of Miami, Florida, signed up for his first cycling race so he could propose to his girlfriend Sara Frank, 30.
Images show the dirt bike sliding away from the racer and crashing into a fence at the Motorama racing event in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
The enthusiastic motorcyclist fell as if injured, rose to his feet, and then turned to turn his back on the crowd.
An official ran up to him, cunningly handing him the ring in the process, before Sara rushed from the stands to her boyfriend.
When he leaned in to check on his partner, he was on one knee holding a ring, causing Sara to recoil in surprise.
The rider was also given a microphone to ask the question, to which Sara happily nodded and then said ‘Yes’.
When asked if he had any ideas for the proposal, which took place on February 16, his now fiancé said, “No, I had no idea, I thought it just crashed.”
He came up with the unique way to propose because it would ensure that his girlfriend’s family and friends were present, he said.
Jeremy Durst New Bike
Jeremy bought a new Kawaski KX450 bike and took part in the race, which he thought would mean his girlfriend and family wouldn’t be suspicious.
With thousands of attendees, he contacted the race organizers to pitch his idea, saying that he would pass one of them through the ring before the race.
During the race, he was in last place and then simulated an accident on his last lap.
Putting on a GoPro, Jeremy did just that, but during the race he inadvertently passed another runner, meaning he would have to slow down to let that runner pass.
This meant that Jeremy actually exceeded the safe crash zone he had identified, so he had to opt for a false crash in a separate turn.

Jeremy Durst A Biker
‘At first, I was confused. He wasn’t sure what was wrong with the bike to cause the accident like that.
Then they told me to go check on him and then my confusion turned to worry when I saw him kneeling on the ground. He hoped he wasn’t hurt.
“ After he took the ring out, I think it’s obvious from the video that he was in complete and utter shock, I didn’t see this happen at all.
Once the shock of what was happening faded and I realized that I was not hurt, I was overjoyed.
“I felt incredibly special and loved that he had thought and planned so much of something for me.”
