Wil Hahn Retiring from full-time professional racing
American Motocross and Supercross racer Wil Hahn will retire from full-time professional racing following todays final round of the Australian Supercross Championship in Sydney.

In an open letter to fans the 26-year-old wrote:

"I don't know where to begin, as this is hard for me to say. However, the Aus-X Open will be my last race as a full-time professional racer. I know that 26 is a young age to retire from racing, but it is time for me to move on and pursue another career. I am still just as in love with the sport as I was when I was four-years-old, but sadly, my body has taken a beating through the years. The injuries have taken their toll...when I have a family, I want to be able to throw a ball around with my kid!

"My career may not have been the most successful or the longest, but I sure did make a lot of friends and fans that I will always value. I grew up in a small town with a population under 100, and I'm so fortunate to have experienced the things and seen the places that I have...racing has made it all possible for me. I am so thankful to have lived out my dreams, thanks to motocross racing.

"The next chapter in my life is exciting and it will be a new challenge for me. It would be impossible to personally thank everyone who has helped me throughout my career and help me put my name in the record books, but I am eternally grateful. My family sacrificed everything to help me chase my dream, and I would be nowhere without them. Thank you to everyone back in Kansas who always believed in me.

"I'm proud to announce that after tonight's Aus-X final, I will assume a role with the Factory Connection Honda team to help with race team testing, and will also work closely with its amateur race team. The future is bright, and I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store! I hope to see you all at the races!"

Hahn will be fighting for a top three finish to the Australian Championship this afternoon.
