That sucks, yet, perfect timing - now he doesn't have to explain why he could barely finish a 20 minute race.

Maybe he’s fine with accomplishing his childhood dream of getting that 450 sx championship and doesn’t have the extra drive required to do it again. We’ll never know. Hopefully this fires him up and gives him time to come back the same JA we love.
