The Eastbourne Eagles skipper won’t be returning for the 2017 season.
Jake Knight has taken to Facebook to reveal he’s leaving the side saying, “There has been some ups and downs this year for me, on and off the track.
“I would like to say thanks again to everyone who has helped me this year and a massive thanks to all the fans, as well at Eastbourne as the club wouldn't be what it was without them.
“Unfortunately this decision has not come lightly but I will not be starting the 2017 season.
“It has been a seriously hard decision but with work commitments I cannot put all my effort into my racing and with other things going on as well I'm very sad to say I will not be back.
“I have said that I would still like to be a part of Eastbourne and will help in any way possible but it just won't be on my bike.
“I have made some brilliant friends this year as well.
“You will see me at Eastbourne and I shall make the trip down to support the boys when I can but as I said I will not be racing in 2017.”
