Former AMA Supercross, motocross and British champion Zach Osborne is retiring from pro motocross after an injury-ravaged 2021 season. The factory Husky rider has just announced:
“I’m officially retiring from professional Supercross and Motocross racing. It’s been an amazing ride and one that I wouldn’t change for anything as it’s gotten me to right here where I sit today! I’m forever grateful for opportunities from great individuals, companies and teams to have the best equipment and relationships to perform at the highest level and become a champion of the sport.
“I’ve achieved more than I ever imagined or even dreamed of as a child. There were plenty of lows in my day where I thought even a factory ride of any sort was out of the question let alone winning championships not only in the 250 class but in the 450 class as well.
“I’ve had an amazing run and even though it isn’t ending exactly how I would’ve wanted, I can say I’m content. I’ve poured my heart and soul into the last 16 years of professional racing as has my wife and even my kids. I’m so thankful we’ve gotten to experience this all as family and we will have those memories forever. For now, I’m taking some time to regroup, work on that honey-do list I’ve been neglecting for quite some time now and figure out what’s next! I’ll keep you guys updated. To the fans, Thank you so much for your support through my career! “
We send our best wishes to Zach and we know whatever he does next, he’ll be great at.
