Due to irreconcilable differences between the team and myself, I will not be competing further at Assen this weekend. Nor will I ride with the team for the rest of the season. It is very disappointing to end like this but I have found it very hard with the lack of communication and because of language differences, to get my point across. The teams lack of beliefs in me and my crew became a constant battle. Not being able to work on the bike or to understand how to make it a better package was the end for me. Its time to think about what my future may hold and as the situation was, I could not see a beneficial outcome.
I am very sorry to my sponsors in this time and thank them very much for their hard work and dedication already this season.
