Motocross is a sport that is requires one to put his/her life on the line. Whereas the people who take part in the sport don’t agree it’s risky, actually it is.
You only have to be daring to sit on a bike, ride on extreme speed and emerge winner in a competition not only once but on several occasions. That’s Arthur Blick Junior for you.
A record champion 13 times of the national motocross championship, Blick has on Wednesday announced his retirement from the game.
Below is his statement
It is definitely nitely hard to believe that this day has finally come, but after alot of praying and thinking over the last couple of months, I have decided to hang up my boots and retire from competitive motocross competitions.
This decision has not been easy at all, my entire life has revolved around motocross, however it’s been a true blessing from God, one I’m thankful for.
I can humbly say that I have achieved more than I ever could have imagined with 13 National Motocross Championships and 2 East African Motocross Championships to my name.
I started racing motorcycles competitively in 1996 and went on to win the 1997,1998,1999,2000, 2003,2004,2005,2007,
2009,2010,2011,2012, 2018 National Motocross Championships including the 2017 and 2018 East African Motocross Championship titles.
I have gone on as hard as I can,for as long as I can and our sport is tough and very expensive, It takes a huge amount of sacrifice, hard work and discipline to stay on top.
I feel that I have contributed enough to help make our sport better off than when I came into It.
I’m proud to have lifted;
“The Blick Legacy”
and hope that I have been a good leader,role model for our beloved sport.
A special thank you to my Mum and Dad for getting me my first racing bike that literally kick started my racing career.
A very special thanks to my wife Noella for believing in me and understanding me as a racer.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank YAMAHA for sponsoring me in the late 90’s into the early 2000’s and to “SHELL” for sponsoring me to date.
Motocross in the past decade has had a firm supporter and sponsor that has significantly helped to grow the sport. I humbly thank Mountain Dew for commitment to the sport.
I couldn’t sign out without thanking you my fans for all the support and encouragement through highs and lows.
