Pela Renet stoppe sa carrière de pilote

A vrai dire, on s’en doutait. OK, on le savait, même, puisqu’on lui a parlé longuement pour une interview à paraître dans le prochain numéro. Mais là, c’est officiel, Pela Renet met un terme à sa carrière de pilote suite aux blessures contractées l’an dernier à l’Atacama Rally. Voici son communiqué : 

” Bonjour à tous !

Plusieurs mois se sont écoulés depuis ma chute au rallye du Chili. Malheureusement, les blessures physiques que j’ai subies ont été trop importantes et il est désormais certain que je ne pourrai plus pratiquer mon sport au plus haut niveau. C’est avec un peu de tristesse que je vous annonce officiellement la fin de ma carrière sportive. Mais aussi avec beaucoup de motivation pour le futur qui m’attend.

Je remercie tous les supporters qui m’ont soutenu au fil des années et au fil des disciplines ; votre soutien est inestimable. Une pensée également pour tous les partenaires qui m’ont accompagné et sans qui je n’aurais pu avoir cette magnifique carrière. Et enfin, un dernier merci à mon team Husqvarna pour ces dernières années de confiance et de victoires gagnées ensemble.

Le monde de la moto n’est pas si grand… Soyez sûrs que nous nous retrouverons bientôt ! Merci à tous ! ”

Cela dit, Pela reste dans “le milieu” TT puisque la firme Husqvarna a confirmé (en anglais !) dans un communiqué que notre homme est désormais le coordinateur du team rallye. Une belle reconversion à venir pour le Normand !  

ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING WELCOME PELA RENET AS RALLY TEAM COORDINATOR
FORMER ENDURO WORLD CHAMPION TO CONTINUE WORKING WITH HUSQVARNA MOTORSPORT DEPARTMENT IN ADVISORY ROLE
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing are pleased to announce the appointment of Pela Renet as their new Rally Team Coordinator. Following his retirement from competitive racing due to injuries sustained at the Atacama Rally in August 2017, the Frenchman will remain with Husqvarna Factory Racing to assist the team in their next Cross Country Rally world championship and Dakar campaign.

Pela Renet has enjoyed a varied and very successful career in motorcycle racing. His first world title came in 2009 where he was crowned FIM MX3 World Champion. Pela then switched to enduro, where he won several French championships as well as clinching two world titles in 2012 and 2014.

A change to rally in 2015 saw Pela race the Dakar Rally for the first time – a dream come true for the multiple world champion. Displaying great speed and skill on his Husqvarna rally machine, Pela finished seventh in 2017 at the Dakar – his best result at the event.

Pela Renet: “I am honoured to be appointed as Team Coordinator to the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team. My results over the years would not have been possible without the backing of a great team behind me and to be able to give something back by sharing my knowledge and experience is a real privilege. I look forward to continue working with Husqvarna and hope to claim even more victories together.”

Diego Clement – Head of Motorsport at Husqvarna Motorcycles: “Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing are extremely pleased to continue our working relationship with Pela Renet. He has been a great asset to the team and this continued partnership will benefit both parties immensely. Pela’s attention to detail and thoroughness in all aspects of his preparations and racing were exemplary – that same work ethic and methodical approach to team coordination will be a huge asset to the Husqvarna team. We look forward to working with Pela and hope for more great results.”
