Antonio Lindbäck has decided to retire

Recommended Posts

Antonio says to SVT sport that he has decided to retire. 

Quote

"Hans beslut grundar sig främst på en jobbig säsong där covid-19 låg bakom att han fick sitta i karantän i flera veckor i Polen, utan att kunna träffa familjen.

– Det tog bort lusten lite. Och då bestämde jag att jag skulle ge mig på något annat, och faktiskt lägga släpskon på hyllan, säger Antonio Lindbäck till SVT Sport."

Superb talent and remember him bursting onto the scene well. 
 

I think it would be fair to say with his talent at a young age , he should of ended up with a world championship medal. 
 

was arguably the most exciting rider in the world around 2004/5/6ish.

Sad he's leaving the sport, but glad he's fit and healthy. Loved watching him celebrate the title this year and have really enjoyed his riding over the years.

Svt made a short documentary about Antonio but unfortunately it's only available in Sweden.
I'll post it anyway though: https://www.svtplay.se/video/29055502/rio-rocket-en-osannolik-speedwayresa

"Speedwaysnack- hemma hos" video blog series also have three episodes with Antonio:

Part 1: https://youtu.be/TJjk6PXagew

Seems a bit premature to me, I fancy he'll be back at some stage in the future. I think he's always struggled to handle the pressure at the highest level but I do think he could make a decent living riding in the Swedish, British and Danish Leagues and open meetings around Europe without the pressures of the GP and Polish Leagues and he'd probably enjoy it a hell of a lot more too.
