A multiple Polish champion in motocross Łukasz Luka died. The 29-year-old athlete of AMK Człuchów had a serious accident during the East Motocross Cup 2019 on Sunday 7 July.

We reported earlier in the week that Polish rider, Łukasz Lonka was fighting for his life after crashing whist competing at a regional championship in Poland.

Lonka needed to be air lifted from the track and was taken to hospital but unfortunately during the early hours of this morning he’s tragically passed away.

It’s the dark side of our sport and our thoughts are with his wife, his daughter and the rest of the family.

Mrs Lonka posted the following message on social media, “It is with great heart and pain that my dear husband passed away from us today”.

RIP Łukasz Lonka!
