In case you missed the news, JM Honda Racing’s Julien Lieber is stepping away from motocross as professional rider due to injuries. Check out the statement he put on his Instagram account below.
This is it guys! Today is the day that I’m stepping away from motocross as a professional rider. I never expected that the curtain call would come so soon but unfortunately injuries have decided for me.
You always want to do to more but I’m grateful for what I’ve been able to achieve and for all the support I received along the way. I got to ride for awesome teams and raced against the best in the world. I led the world championship for a moment, I travelled the world and lived the dream I had since I was a little boy. It’s hard to describe everything that comes up with this announcement. Hit the link in bio to read the interview about my retirement.👆👆 Thanks for following me and believing in me. See you around.
