Hello everyone, wanna give you an update on my situation and what’s going on for the next weeks. As been the toughest year of my career so far, struggling a lot and not making any positive from racing. Me and my team have decided to take a break from it for the moment.

This has been the worse decision I ever done but at the minute, I think it’s the only one that could work out. I don’t know anything when and where I’m going to be back at it, I just want to give my body and to my mind a little bit of rest.

I can’t be more thankful to my family, team and the people that have my back on such difficult days but Fede is going to be back where he belongs.

I love this sport with everything in me, but in the end of the day, it’s just motocross. It began bleeding into my personal life and poisoning my love for the sport. To me, that cost is far too high for me to continue. I’m not quitting, as I’m not ready for that. I’m just resting for a bit, see you around.
