It is with great sadness that Enduro21 has to report the death of rider and all-round off-road enthusiast Jaroslav Diro at the EnduroGP of Slovakia.

The incident happened during the early stages of the Friday night Super Test in Gelnica, just as the World Cup classes had opened the show at 2023 GP of Slovakia.

Jaroslav was among the first riders taking to the Super Test course but crashed heavily, taking internal injuries. Medics treated him immediately at the track but we understand the injuries sustained were catastrophic.

Enduro21 wishes sincere condolences to Jaroslav’s family and everyone who knew him. We know he was part of the local off-road scene in Slovakia and was passionate about helping the world championship event in Gelnica.
