    Shinya Nakano retires from racing!

    To everyone who have supported me,

    I send this news on a short notice, but I have decided to retire from racing at the end of this season.

    I’ve concentrated on treatment after breaking my collarbone during Round 3 in Spain and straining my neck in Round 11 in Germany, but by missing a few races, I’ve been a burden to my team as well as to others involved.

    I’ve given this a lot of thought the past few weeks, and I’ve come to this decision through my own will.
