Jarni Kooij to take motocross break!
A highly rated Belgian rider, Jarni Kooij has been forced to make the decision to step away from motocross racing for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, the EMX125 rider has a serious blood problem with his kidney.
The young Belgian hasn’t had much luck with regards to injures as back in 2014 he broke his elbow which ruled him out for six months. The following year he then broke his other elbow.
Now due to the problem he has with his kidney through medical advice he has decided to step away from the sport to focus on his health and he has sold his bikes.
Hopefully he will make a return to the sport he loves in a few years once makes a full recovery.
