He's a classy guy. I really appreciate his commitment and his realistic attitude.
I hope SOI Canada might sign him up too.

I'm glad Ryan came back this year and got a National title. Great ending to his competitive career. I've always enjoyed his attitude and sense of fun, and wish him all the best as he starts the next stage of his career.

Wishing Ryan all good things ahead! :)

I will miss him but was kind of expecting this announcement. He accomplished his goal of winning nationals and can forevermore be announced as US Champion. It would be hard to top the magic of this past year.

I wish him the best of luck and really hope that SOI snaps him up and brings their show back to Missouri (they dropped both KC and St Louis this year) so his homestate fans can enjoy his smile and his back flip.

He will be a fantastic show skater. He has it all- jumps, charisma, joy of skating. I hope SOI will sign him.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for him.

Ryan has officially retired from competitive skating.

Excellent decision! I wish him good luck in his future career.

Good luck and God bless, Ryan. Hope to see you at SOI! :cheer2:

I think we'll see him in the new ISU-ICE pro-am competitions next season.
(At least, I hope so.)

Don't those skaters have to have a world or olympic medal though? (And in the past 10 years?)

I thought it was really limiting...

Hopefully he'll get some Disson shows (because I can only watch skating on TV, even though I hate those shows). Or SOI will pick him up and come to a town near me (haha)

This is an amazing coup for the show circuit-he's got such charisma, he'll be amazing!

There are going to be new ISU pro-ams?! That made my day!!
