some important chapters in racing history. It was true love! We got together, we left each other, we hitched up again... And for this reason it is right and I am happy that I am retiring as world champion with Aprilia".

"It wasn't an easy decision to make, and last night was the longest night of my life. For sure nothing will be the same as before but I am serene because it was a decision I wanted to make, not one I was forced into making. In any case together with Aprilia we are discussing about a project in the not too distant future and I hope I will be able to give you some more information soon".

Sad year to lose two great riders in the sport Casey first and now Max. Its tough to blame either, especially Max, 41 years old, top of his game still and injury free, in this sport making it past 30 still fit and winning is a huge accomplishment, can't blame him for hanging up the leathers before a major injury forces him to, which could F'up his quality of life forever. Thanks for the great memories and races!

re: "I think I've taken enough time from my children and my wife. It's the right time to stop."

brilliant...!!! when a man makes a decision to be a husband to his wife and a father to his children, he does so without fear or regret as to whether or not he made the right decision. no other choice comes close.

a great great champion. good luck for your life Max!

a fantastic rider, and also a very strong man, he had many wins, and many difficult times too, he had to face an unbelievable amount of hostility during the Rossi years, especially from the italian press

they thought he was finished in 2005...
but here we are, year 2012, saying goodbye to the world champion!

@ George
"One thing about Max is that while he was generally considered an a#se in Motogp, in WSB he was really chilled,"

Jonathan Rea mentioned in recent article it wasn't the right time for him to join MotoGP as the paddock seemed way more political so thats a WSBK guys feel for the MotoGP paddock. Plus the money involved there the pressure is probably mega.

Although i wouldn't say he was too chilled with Melandri and the face slapping incident - but to be honest the way Melandri has been racing in WSBK has put me right off him due to his dirty riding even to his team mate running LH off track and Biaggi was doing us all a favour
