Five-times and reigning Enduro world champion Mika Ahola has died at the age of 37.

Mika won five world titles with Honda from 2007-2011 across three different classes as well as claiming the International Six Days Enduro title on seven occasions as part of Team Finland. He also claimed three individual titles at that event.

Upon retiring on New Year's Day, he said: "I gave it my all, and even though the sport took a lot, it also rewarded me with more than I could have ever imagined when I first started.

"I have fulfilled my ambitions and I feel that it is time to move on and see what else the world has to offer."

We will miss Mika, it was an honor to work with him.
