After a great deal of thought, I am today announcing that I will be taking a break from speedway and will not be racing at all during the 2015 speedway season.

This last season has been a struggle for me both personally and professionally, I have lost my love for the sport, have no desire to race and am quite simply not enjoying it anymore. To be a successful rider you have to make many sacrifices and a lot of these have a major impact on your life away from speedway. When you get pleasure from your racing, these sacrifices are easier to make, but when you are not then it is a very different situation. Speedway is a dangerous sport and when you're not enjoying it, there are safer ways to make a living. It is time for me to do something else.

I would like to thank everyone at Lakeside and ZKS ROW Rybnik, particularly the supporters of both clubs who have been fantastic in their love and support of me. I would also like to thank my sponsors who believed in me, my promoters, my off track team and most especially my grandfather Alan Thompson, all of whom have helped me along the way.

It is my hope that I will benefit from taking a break from speedway, that I will re-discover my love for the sport and perhaps I will return better and stronger in the future.
