Beattie not retiring

Contrary to internet rumours, top Manx road racer Nigel Beattie is NOT retiring.

He has however parted company with team CD Racing following certain problems with his bike during the T.T., which he says were 'out of his control'.

Nigel says he's taking some time out to consider his options, and will make a decision about his future later in the year.

Nigel is one of the most successful Manx riders ever, with wins in the Isle of Man Championship, Manx Grand Prix, the North West 200 and a TT podium finish.
