Being off the track since the first GP, I feel it is time for me to
step up and inform you all on my current situation and what my
close future looks like.
Some friends have informed me about the stupid rumors floating around
on Internet about my current health situation and also about my
relationship with KTM. It is then necessary for me to explain myself on
these subjects to first reestablish the true and also to cool down the
I’m currently physically diminished due to a virus (mononucleosis) that
is affecting my physical condition and prevent me to keep a regular
physical activity in time.
A strong antibiotics medication treatment just had no effect at all on
the virus and it seems that the only solution for me to recover is to
go through a long period of rest.
I then have to accept it and commit to stay home and rest against my
own will for an undetermined period. It is obvious that such decision
is affecting my momentum. I’m also especially disappointed for
KTM who had put together a great effort and put a lot of hope in me.
I want to say that my relationship with KTM has always been great and I
really want to express my gratitude to them especially for their
support over the difficult past weeks. I’m particularly disappointed
for Pit Beirer who had done an incredible job and provided a lot of
efforts to supply me with fantastic equipment.
If my health condition does not improve within the coming weeks I will
have to consider a lighter program. But in any case it is today
making more sense for me to ends my GP career.
The coming weeks will be crucial and of course I will be keeping you updated also trough my personal website.
