Dani retires

One of the most successful riders of all time is calling it quits.

A little sad to see him go as well. He got a lot of flak over the years, but I always felt he was riding his ass off.

Just not good enough for GP class. Instead of retiring, he should just drop a class or head to wsbk.

yeah i hate to see him go too (because i didn't want his spot to open and thus lorenzo may not have left) but dani never really won anything and he wasn't about to win either. it is time for him to go along with a few others as well.

How is totalling more points than even Lorenzo being "just not good enough?". That's a seriously ignorant claim!

Exactly he always gets so close to a championship win or race win but something always goes wrong.
