Mika Ahola... passed away?

just bumped into this:

http://www.befurious.com/fallece-mika-ahola/

translation:

It is the saddest news that we have in our entire lives, the great Mika Ahola, who in recent months news became his move recurring Spanish brand JTG and subsequent announcement of his retirement, died tonight at the 37 years old at the hospital.
Just over a month, while training, Mika suffered a drop in a circuit of Gerona. Neither was given much importance as it left the track under his own power, but almost a month later, the injury is fatal. A piercing a vital organ and doctors apparently have not been able to locate the cause.
Earlier this year, 15 days ago Mika tried to train and things did not work out, maybe your precipitate rapid withdrawal announcement came motivated by the situation we are facing and wear the injury that caused him today, unfortunately, takes away one of the greatest drivers the sport has. Rest in peace Mika. Your memory is indelible and among us.





God speed....

It was confirmed in the Finnish news (& those close to Mika), the multiple enduro world champion Mika Ahola from Finland has passed away. He was a unique and colourful character, knowns as "Lupo" (wolf) in Finnish enduro circles. What sad news...

What a loss. He just retired in 2011 and was looking forward to the next chapter in life.
