Ken De Dycker retires

Belgian rider Ken De Dycker has decided this will be his last season racing in the Grand Prix series. The multiple GP winner will end his career this month. De Dycker has ridden for many factory teams, including KTM and Suzuki. Some of his best moments also came with the CAS Honda team, which was a factory team at the time.

“It’s just time to do something else,” De Dycker said. “I think its been 15 years I have raced Grand Prix. Life isn’t just about motocross. I am happy with all the years I had. Of course I had fond memories and those memories I can’t achieve anywhere else. I had some big injures the last two years and I can’t get to the speed of the top guys anymore.”
