History is made in motocross as there has never been a defending world champion who has retired from the series due to being pregnant! But six-times world champ Kiara Fontanesi is to stop racing this season as she is to have a baby.
She said: “This year I might not win the world championship but I’m realising my biggest dream: BE A MUM ! ?
“It’s been hard to take a decision trying to understand when would had been the right time considering my career but I’ve felt this year would had been the best for me ( considering my physical problem that forced me to rest ) and I’ve never been so happy in my life before ! My priority is to give the best to the baby during this months but as soon as she’s born I’ll be moving my ass of because I can’t wait to ride again.
“Step by step I’ll be back fit and ready to line up behind the gate next season and as always fighting for the title.. this time not only for myself but for my own family first ❤️ I love you Devin and thank you for making my dream come true!”
“I wanted to wait longer to announce this but as I’m living a kind of life where it’s really difficult to keep things secret I had to let you all know before somebody else do!”
Congrats to Kiara!
