All The Best

Neil will be missed, but if it for the best then all the best in the future.

Love the book "back on Track" and still remember the GSE  racing days, with the loyal orange Afro hair wearing fans.

Happy retirement

What ever you think about Neil he has still been a world champion , and a worthy one at that . Saw the crash first -hand at Brands and knew it was bad . Good luck to you Neil and all the best for the future.

It's sad that he has been forced into retirement through injury, but also sad for the team who now have to find a decent rider part way through the season. Having said that was it wise to have continued racing in the first place if his shoulder was that delicate. Footballers who have a history of injuries have to have thorough medicals before signing for a new team, last minute rejections due to failed medicals are not unknown.

Neil Hodgson calls it quits

:upset:I was really sorry to hear the news about Neil as I was really looking forward to a front running season on last years winning bike. I was never convinced he was 100% fit and the Brands crash has killed it, crying shame.

I would like to send my thanks to Neil for all the great memories in BSB and WBS, the Walker season leaps to mind. And would like to wish him every success in the future, he was in my opinion a true racer and always better than the "52" guy..:upset:
