Jimmy Decotis has revealed that for the last three years he’s been battling with Lyme Disease which has really been affecting him and he’s decided that he will take some time away from racing to fully focus on his health.
Decotis says he does want to get back to racing but to the level he was at before, it remains to be seen if and when he will make a return.
“I wanted to update everyone and let you know that I will not be racing the final leg of @supercrosslive starting this weekend. The last 3 years I have tried to compete at the highest level in the world while battling my Lyme Disease. I have tried everything in my power to remain healthy while pushing my body to the limits but unfortunately it has caused my health to decline to a point where racing dirtbikes just isn’t in the cards for me at this time. I love this sport with all my heart and I hope one day I can find some more answers so I can go back to doing what I love with my team, sponsors and fans. I’m stepping away from racing for the time being to focus solely on my health and to hopefully get back to the person and racer I was once. The @jgrmx team and I have had some incredible results under these circumstances and have built relationships that will last a life time. Thank you guys for always supporting me and going above and beyond”, Decotis stated.
