Keith Amor retires from road racing

Scotsman Keith Amor has taken the decision to retire from road racing at the age of 39. The TT Legends Honda rider made the decision to retire after serious shoulder injuries he sustained at the Isle of Man TT in 2011 failed to heal. "I had three freaky crashes last year and they left me in a lot of pain," said...

Sad Day

What a sad day, Keith was always a hard charging road racer who I always enjoyed watching at the TT. It seems recently that a lot of great racers are retiring early from crashes that initially seemed to be not too serious.

I think Keith was very unlucky in 2011 at the TT and to his credit, gave a fabulous account of himself whilst carrying the injuries he sustained early (Four top 5 finishes and a podium). Top man.

He will be greatly missed. Good luck in all things you take on moving forward.

All the best!

With a little bit of luck a win at the TT wasn't far away! When I was at the TT a few years ago it was great to see a fellow scot up there at the front!! Good wishes for the future Keith! Ciao

You say Keith was unlucky in the 2011 TT. The other side is that he was very lucky not to hit anything when he came off in the wet in the Supersport TT. I saw the video of this.

A superb rider that always brought so much to the TT. However at 39 IMO this is a great time to hang up your leathers. We can no doubt look forward to his informed comments on Radio TT.

Best of luck for the future.

What a legend

The guy was always fun to watch, and always tried hard... what more could you ask for! Let's hope he stays involved in motorcycle racing as a manager or mentor or something??

Right decision, he's been there and got the t-shirt. Not many get to race factory Hondas - he can hold his head high.
