Here it is today is a beautiful day, it took me a lot of effort to write this but at the end of this season I will retire from the sport that I love so much. I’ve thought about it very well and it is the right time to say goodbye to 17 years of world championship motocross! As a child it was a dream to achieve this and even though I have not broken all the records, I think I can be super proud of what I have accomplished. Becoming world champion was always the big dream and unfortunately I didn’t succeed but with a 3rd place in the mx2 class and a vice world title in the MXGP class all those beautiful podiums every time I was allowed to represent my country at the motocross of nations all the beautiful fights on the track with the best rider in the world, to ride for all those great factory teams and to work with so many great people is one of the best things that happened to me and where I look back with my head held high and never forget! Racing is the only thing I know , day in and day out my life was all about racing but after this season it’s time for a new chapter in my life together with my wife and two wonderful sons! I am so grateful to everyone who has helped me achieve this ! in the first place my parents who have sacrificed everything from day one, the team’s, the people I have worked with and most of all you my fans! I thank you so much for all the love and support I have received the past 17 years! Also a special thanks to SDM Corse and Betamotor1905 for the last two years!
