We caught sad news from Andy Ruffell’s Facebook page that Tony Hoffman passed away. Read below from Andy. RIP The Hoff.
I’ve just had some very, very sad news; ‘The Hoff’ has just passed away due to complications from the virus. Tony Hoffman was a great friend of Craig and Zoe Schofield and I since the early ’80s. It’s hard to explain how influential Tony was in the 80s BMX Scene. Tony was a great race commentator for NBMXA, he was a prime mover in setting up the Professional Riders Association, he organized some major sponsorships for BMX Races and riders not to mention he was also a true maverick in the sport and in life. Most of all, however, he was our very dear friend, then, now and forever. We will never forget his charm, wit, and loyalty to his friends, he will be sorely missed. Our love and prayers are with Linda, Bryn, and Donna at this very difficult time.
Tony, you will always be in our hearts, we will never forget you.
