Lorenzo is right with his withdrawal

He has had a difficult time, has recovered from terrible injuries and has always exhibited a pundonor and courage that goes even beyond his triumphs.


I met Lorenzo while competing in the Aprilia Cup. He must have been 10 years old and whoever was his mentor and many years representative, Amatriaín, insisted until he satiated to introduce me to that boy with a crest as a hairstyle. "You have to get 'Giorgio' in the AS, he is a special kid, trust me," Dani told me and we did so. A small interview that materialized more a matter of faith than a reality. Time passed and it turns out that 'Giorgio', as he called himself then, became Jorge and one of the most successful riders in the history of motorcycling. Cheeky, daring, irreverent, controversial even on occasion but above all creditor of an exceptional talent to ride a motorcycle that endorses, without any interpretation, his impressive record in the World Cup.

Now Lorenzo has decided to retire and it seems completely successful. He has nothing to prove, his time among the best has passed and when this happens the smartest thing is to accept it naturally and honestly. Simple law of life, also in sports. Its complete existence, not only as an adult, has passed between motorcycles, races and the maximum pressure of fighting to be the best. He has had a difficult time, has suffered hard falls, has recovered from terrible injuries and has always exhibited a pundonor and courage that goes even beyond his triumphs. Today he has an age and a situation that completely justify a goodbye that we must all respect and understand. And of course thanking you for how much this indomitable Mallorcan has made us enjoy. Until forever, champion
