Cole Seely announced his retirement from professional motorcycle racing this morning via his social media. Below are words from Seely himself:

“Well guys the time has come.. I’m retiring from the sport of motocross. The term bittersweet has never felt so real before. The two words that come to mind as I step away from racing are thankful and excited. I’m so thankful for everyone who’s ever played a part in my career. To my family, friends and fans, you guys have no idea how much your support and love means to me. A decade ago I was just a kid with a dream and a slight chance to make it in this sport. I may not have broken any records and my stats may be far from the best but I hope I inspired the younger generation and gave the young riders that line up against the current protégés hope that the underdog can rise up. I got to ride for some of the best teams throughout my career and I very prideful in that. The few mechanics I’ve had over the years we’re some of the hardest working guys in the sport and we’re true inspirations to me. Also I’ve had some of the most badass teammates and got to share some awesome times on the road with you guys. I also want to say thanks to my competitors, it’s been an honor racing against the worlds greatest. Thanks for pushing me and constantly humbling me, I hope at times I did the same. Racing is all I’ve ever known but I’m stoked for the next chapter in my life. I’m super excited to explore what’s next and plan to share whatever it is I’m up to with you guys. Thanks for having me and watching me live out my dream every Saturday.”
