Jaroslav Diro died yesterday evening after a fall during the traditional prologue on Friday, while he was engaged in the Open 4T category astride a Yamaha. As the images in the video below show, Diro tipped over and was hit by his own motorcycle, which left him with a fatal neck injury. Rescue efforts and attempts to revive him were useless. The special stage was canceled and the pilots paid tribute to Jaroslav with a parade. This is the official press release:

It is with great sadness that we report the tragic death of Jaroslav Diro – rider #636 – during the Super Test at the fifth round of the 2023 FIM EnduroGP World Championship held in Gelnica, Slovakia. Despite the best efforts of the on-site medical team, Jaroslav Diro, who was competing in the Enduro Open 4 Stroke class, unfortunately succumbed to his injuries sustained in a crash. The FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme), promoter Prime Stadium, the Slovak Motorcycle Federation, local organizer GL MOTO TEAM and the entire EnduroGP family, join the entire motorcycle community in extending their condolences to his family and his friends in this extremely sad and difficult time.
