Up-and-coming road racer Joey Thompson has announced his retirement from competition.

The Yorkshireman says he has been unable to secure a competitive package for the 2019 season, so is calling it a day.

“It is with great regret that I have to announce that I will be calling time on my Professional Road Racing career,” Thompson wrote on Twitter.

“After 2 very successful years racing on the roads and the Isle of Man TT I can not find myself a competitive package. Thanks to all my loyal fans and sponsors.”
