The G.O.A.T. Is No More

Suzuki announced today that RC had to drop out of the US open of supercross that was scheduled for this weekend and most likely the Bercy Supercross in France set to go next month. He was diagnosed with CFS or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome earlier this week, and was advised to take it easy. Doctors said it was most likely due to an intense training schedule on both 2 wheels and 4, and a lack of sleep while taking care of his new twins. I guess the guy was pretty busy, and his body paid the toll. This is a pretty sad story to hear being a motocross fan, knowing that the Greatest Of All Time got stuck with something so unfortunate. Being a glass half full kinda guy, I figured at least he completed his amazing career, and got to achieve all his racing goals before this happened. All I'm saying is the timing could have been alot worse. Our best goes to Ricky, and the whole Carmichael camp, hoping that things look up for RC, and he can still fulfill his car racing dreams.
