John Coen 1961 – 2021
Today is a sad day once again for the MSC Motocross community. John Coen, Founder of Diamondback MX and life long AMA and MSC member has passed away from Kidney Cancer.
John will be remembered for his creation of Diamondback MX in Modena, NY where it was “Built by Racers, For Racers” with massive jumps, whoops, staircase sections, the big triple out back, huge bowl turn by the spectators and the school bus signup booth! Behind the scenes John’s insite would prove to be a tremendous help with managing the MSC. John was also someone who would help anyone at any time with anything! John would donate his money, time, his possessions, you name it, he would do it to help someone in need. He will be missed dearly.
Our sincere condolences go out to Kelly, Jack, Carlo, Angela, and Mrs Coen and his many family and friends during this very difficult time.
Who knows they are dying and heads over to Moroney’s and buys a 2021.5 Factory Edition KTM 450, rode it once down the driveway just to do it one last time? Oh yeah my buddy Johnny did. He was one cool dude.
Rest in Peace to MSC Expert #10 – John Coen
