Mladin retiring

Matt Mladin announced his retirement from AMA racing effective at the end of the season. He just says retirement from AMA, but talks about more time with his family so it's most likely for good.

I don't know if this weekends Topeka round was the deal breaker or not. This weekend AMA returned to Topeka Kansas for the first time in many years. Several riders, including Mladin and Hacking, said it is completely unsafe, with concrete walls close to the track. Mladin and Hacking refused to race and went home.

yea Mladin would almost certainly have wrapped the championship here too.

That's integrity IMO. He said he wouldn't run at any tracks that weren't safe and he's willing to risk his championship to stand by his word.

Lawson and Rainey both were in positions like that during their careers and both caved and went for the points.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

It has also been announced he is retiring at the end of the season now too. I have mucho respect for his decision to not race, and it turns out hacking is not racing either.

I don't suppose this will be a move to the manufacturer series for him with the retirement, as he only said
