Life can throw a curveball at you at anytime which has made some people have to give up what their true passion is. Well luckily for rider Nicolas Rius he is coming back! Rius was one of the best European riders to ever race and is quite excited to be coming back for the 2017 race season. Coming back to racing requires a lot of training but Rius is looking to rekindle the competition between fellow rider and world champion Chris MacClugage.
This sparks a lot of excitement as MacClugage has won over 21 World Championships and has proven himself to be one of the best riders. But Nicolas Rius has 16 World Titles and that was back in the 90s when he was racing in Europe. In 2011, he was involved in a high speed crash and decided to retire. So coming out of retirement riding a Yamaha GP1800 will surely make a statement. With the backing of the powerhouse RIVA Racing, it will surely give Dean’s Team Racing a run for its money.
This year’s 2017 race season will be full of jam packed action and it all kicks off at this year’s Mark Hahn Memorial 300 taking place this weekend in Lake Havasu, AZ where he’ll be partnering with fellow Frenchman Cyrille Lemoine to compete for the title. Next, Rius will be charging the AquaX season, beginning at Daytona Beach. Be prepared to hear about Nicolas Ruis and his epic comeback to the racing scene! Let’s hope that all racers especially Nicolas Rius have a great season and are able to remain safe and healthy.
