Lewis Gregory and his team GL12 Racing have mutually agreed that Lewis will step away from competitive racing with immediate effect.
At the Hawkstone International in early February this year, Lewis Gregory was involved in a crash that caused concussion and a neck injury, which led to nerve problems.
Since then Lewis has been on a deliberately slow return to ensure he had the proper time to recover and acclimatise to racing again.
The team were in Valkenswaard at the weekend preparing for the coming EMX300 series, which kicks off in Teutschenthal, Germany on May 21. And although Lewis was at the event, he didn’t race.
Team boss at GL12 Racing, Bob Buchanan, explained today in a press release that Lewis will not be competing in any races for the foreseeable future so the issues can be properly diagnosed.
“I have taken these decisions mutually with Lewis as my concerns are only with his health and safety,” he said. “I took the decision to send him home from Valkenswaard and not to race purely out of thought for his safety.
“Watching him on the bike since Hawkstone, it has not been recognisable as Lewis, I am his number one fan and friend and I must think of Lewis.”
