Zach Osborne has announced he is retiring from professional Supercross and Motocross racing. Osborne wraps up a 16-year career with four championships racing with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory team.
In a statement posted to his Instagram account Osborne says: I’m officially retiring from professional Supercross and Motocross racing. It’s been an amazing ride and one that I wouldn’t change for anything as it’s gotten me to right here where I sit today! I’m forever grateful for opportunities from great individuals, companies and teams to have the best equipment and relationships to perform at the highest level and become a champion of the sport. I’ve achieved more than I ever imagined or even dreamed of as a child. There were plenty of lows in my day where I thought even a factory ride of any sort was out of the question let alone winning championships not only in the 250 class but in the 450 class as well. I’ve had an amazing run and even though it isn’t ending exactly how I would’ve wanted, I can say I’m content. I’ve poured my heart and soul into the last 16 years of professional racing as has my wife @brittney_osborne and even my kids. I’m so thankful we’ve gotten to experience this all as family and we will have those memories forever. For now, I’m taking some time to regroup, work on that honey-do list I’ve been neglecting for quite some time now and figure out what’s next! I’ll keep you guys updated. To the fans, Thank you so much for your support through my career!
Osborne won the AMA Pro Motocross Championship in 2020. A back injury this year would sideline Osborne.
