The 36-year old Llombai native doesn't mince words as he confirms that he won't be riding for the German manufacturer in 2022
Despite reassurances received from the factory BMW Motorrad team competing in World Endurance, Xavi Forés will not have a seat in 2022. It is Forés himself to explain it through a social post that leaves very little to the imagination.
“When everything seemed to be done for 2022, after several calls with BMW Motorrad Endurance and after a verbal agreement, I receive the call today to tell me that they will not have me on the team”, writes the Spaniard.
“They will not have the rider who has given them two comebacks at a record pace in Estoril and Le Mans, they will not have the rider who broke his shoulder when another rider hit me while I was working for them, and they will not have the rider who left BSB in order to fight for the title before my injury”, continues Xavi, in reference to his split with Team FHO Racing BMW prior to the final EWC round at Most, which Xavi did not contest due to the after-effects of his accident at the Bol d'Or.
“They decide to change me for “marketing reasons” for another rider. I am not going to go into details, I just experienced the situation with less respect than my entire sporting career and with less professionalism. They have left me out of the market, only notifying me now, with everything already closed. BMW, you don't deserve me neither as a rider nor as a person”, concludes a disappointed Forés.
