Motorcyclist killed at Khancoban

A SYDNEY motorcyclist has died after crashing into a rock face at Khancoban yesterday.

The 59-year-old Glenbrook man was riding his road bike alongside his 27-year-old son about 10.30am on Swampy Plains Creek Road, near Alpine Way, when he lost control on a sweeping bend.

The son, who witnessed the crash, attempted first aid but the man died at the scene.

Albury Insp David Cottee said the two men had been travelling through the region on a motorcycle tour and both were in full protective clothing.

There was no indication at this stage what led to the crash, he said, and speed was not a factor.
