Luka Milec calls time on Motocross career
Young Slovenian talent, Luka Milec has had some good results in the European championships in the past but hasn’t had an easy time of it due to injuries – it shows what a tough sport Motocross can be.
After a recent serious arm injury, Milec has decided to call a time on his professional Motocross career but will stay in the sport as he wants to give back the sport he loves so much as a coach.
You can read Milec’s statement below:
“Where should I begin,2020 is coming to an end. It was a hard year for all of us, but it couldn’t be any worse for me. It started great with some preparations in Italy with @rj912mxschool, then going to Hungary for the last ride before EMX was where it all started. I cut my arm and had a blood transfusion, of course my arm lost some strength and despite that I was fighting every day to come back stronger and faster than before. Around a month later I crashed in a high speed corner, Immediately I felt my right wrist is injured and I still remember how I thought to myself “this cannot be real, why me again”. First I was told there is a small fracture, which would be great, but a month later we realised an operation is needed. I got operated and rest for over 6 months, till they told me operation was not as successful as they were hoping for. Now, 7 months later, I went to Austria to dr. Schenk private clinic for an operation and so far it looks successful. At this point I would like to thank my family for making this possible”, Milec stated on social media.
“About my plans, after this awful injury we decided to end my competitive motocross career. I decided to focus myself on coaching other guys. As a rider I really believe I had great technique on the bike and gained some experience that would truly help anyone that wants to improve their skills. I am starting a journey of creating a motocross school… More information coming soon or in DMs. About my career, I’ve been really trying hard, some may say I failed, but things I achieved will be “mission impossible” for many of others… Only few people know the story behind the scene, that’s my family, which made it all possible and I LOVE THEM FOR THAT! And my coaches @romanjelen912 and @fitextreme, thank you guys for always believing in me and helping me with your knowledge”, concluded Milec.
