News has just been released that Manon Carpenter is retiring from downhill racing.
Radon Factory Racing just released a statement regarding Manon's decision to retire:
With mixed feelings we have to tell you that Manon Carpenter has decided to withdraw from Downhill MTB racing.
For some time Manon has been struggling with her mindset. After the UCI DH World Cup in Lenzerheide and the British National DH Championships things were clear for Manon. It’s time for her to move on, and step away from World Cup DH Racing.
The whole Radon Bikes Crew wishes Manon all the best in the future.
