Jacque retires from racing.

Jacque retires from racing.

"After a difficult, injury littered, start to the 2007 season, Olivier Jacque has confirmed an immediate end to his MotoGP career - and will step back to the role of Kawasaki test and development rider."

Wow, happy for him that he still gets to be a test rider and I think it is noble of him if it was indeed his decision due to his injuries. Wonder who will replace him now???

OJ is a good rider (for a frog), who has helped the ZX-RR development more than hurt it, in my opinion....

I have never seen a rider crash more or see bikes blow up under him as much as this guy. Ok maybe Hopper in the past but Jacque took his place O well the best of luck to him and his new position.

I'm not fast I'm just faster than you

97 ZX11, 98 R1, 00 CBR929, 02 RC51, 02 Duc 998, 02 GSXR 1000, 04 GSXR 600, 05 ZX10R, 05 ZX6R, 06 Husky TE 510, 07 ZX6R, 04 GSXR 750, 2001 CBR929RR, 2007 ZX10R SE Hows my resume
