Enduro21 joins the off-road racing community in expressing sadness and condolences on the passing of US racing legend, Ed Lojak.

Enduro21 is saddened to report that Ed Lojak has passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Tarentum, Pennsylvania, after a short illness at the age of just 63 years old. 

Lojak was an off-road racing GOAT well before the term was banded about like it is today, His many accolades include nine Grand National Cross Country overall titles (1980-1984, 1986-1989), five International Six Day Enduro participations with two gold and two silver medals for Team USA (1979-1982), three AMA National Hare Scramble Overall Championships (1982, 1983, 1987), and two Blackwater “100” Overall Wins (1984 & 1989). 

In recognition of his accomplishments, Ed was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame in 2017 and will forever be remembered by not just US off-road fans, those who bought their bikes and parts from the family business, Lojak Cycle Sales, over the last 50 years but by the wider international racing community.

Enduro21 expresses condolences to Ed’s family and friends.
