Andrew Neethling has this morning announced his retirement from World Cup racing via social media.
Needles has been racing downhill for 14 years and picked up a flurry of World Cup podiums, including a third place finishes in Windham and Hafjell. Unfortunately bad luck and injuries stood in the way of Neethling moving up to the top step for most of his racing career. The South African also won the Crankworx Air DH in 2011 and is a former South African National Champion.
It had already been made public that Neethling had parted ways with his sponsor Polygon earlier in the off season but he has now made it official he’s hanging up his helmet for good.
