Balancing racing with professional and personal commitments has become impossible at this stage…. Thanks to all event organisers, fellow racers, marshals and supporters for all these wonderful years.. A special thanks to Kevin Spurr and Joao Casal for keeping my bikes in tip top shape over the years and the Bowers family for welcoming on the Isle of Man time and time again….. Best of luck for everyone for the 2016 and beyond.”
