4-voudig wereldkampioen Joonas Kylmakorpi moet vanwege blessure leed stoppen met racen!










4-voudig wereldkampioen Langbaan Joonas Kylmakorpi stopt met racen.

Vanwege een aantal valpartijen vorig jaar en een zware crash in december moet Kylmakorpi stoppen met actieve baansport.

De blessures hebben voor zowel zijn Langbaan GP als zijn professionele speedway activiteiten een eind gemaakt aan zijn carrière.


Dit maakte hij vandaag bekend.


I'm done.


During training in December i was involved in a horrendous crash, broke my femur and pelvis. I undergone 2 operations but the recovery did not bring satisfactory results. Me and world class medical team did everything possible after the crash, but despite all efforts, this injury is career ending.


I take this verdict with respect and calmness. I am proud of my sports achievements and feel I fulfilled my goals. I am the first one in the history of Long Track racing t...o win 4 consecutive World Champion titles.

I raced all over the world, collected 7 world championship medals, participated in Speedway Grand Prix rounds and top speedway leagues.

I never only dreamed of winning, I worked for it.

Over the years i learned to deal with pain and I am confident to say that even if my head is motivated, my body says no. It's over.


I want to thank my family, friends, fans, sponsors and everyone who helped me during my racing career. Your support has been priceless.

Even if the retirement isn't due to my independent decision, I take it with no sadness. Winning is a part of my character and I am excited to pursuit new life challenges.


Go hard or go home
