Ryan Farquhar comes out of retirement!

Irish road racing legend who has amassed an amazing 199 National road racing wins (more than anybody else) is to make a sensational comeback in 2014!.
And another road race hero 'Keith Amor' will also come out of retirement and race 'for' Ryan Farquhar's KMR racing team also.

Farquhar... Are you sure you want to do this ?

.

MMMmmmmmmm... Not sure that is wise.. If I was Farquhar, I'd take a leaf out of Phil McCallen's book and enjoy life from the paddock side and grand stand...

Anyway, I wish them both luck for the future..

I have to agree with JDS;

It's always nice to see someone have a great career in road racing, and walk away in one piece.

Ryan has nothing to prove, and given some of the things he said after his uncle was killed, I'd rather see
him pass his experience on to others from the safe side of the wall.

Good luck to him, and to Keith also!

The older I get, the faster I was!

I was reading a piece from him (Ryan) recently and he reckons he spent a more stressful year in 2013 as a manager with riders riding 'his' bikes than any other he'd had while competing.
Perhaps with Jamie Hamilton leaving him (from the Supertwins bikes) He thought that would be the category to make a comeback in himself. (which he is doing).
I guess racing is in these guys blood and that missing 'buzz' just cannot be replaced which is why so many of them just cannot escape the addiction that road racing brings...no matter what the consequences.

Have a listen to this... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/northern-ireland/25424028
