It is never to stop doing things that you love the most, but I have wanted it always to get retire at a position where I remain fit and competitive,” Schleck said this, before his appearance of third Olympic Games.

“I am extremely proud that I have spent a large part of my life doing things that I love to and that are riding my bike. I am thankful to all my friends who have always been with me in my long journey with the sport.”

Schleck added that, retiring from cycling will let him enjoy family time.

In his speech he said, “The victories, memories and the great time, memories that I have experienced in my career while being with some of the amazing teams will stay with me forever. Leaving the profession is not the end of my cycling career; I will remain a bike rider. The only difference will be leaving the professional side of cycling will let me have more time for my family and to watch my kids growing up. At this point of time, I have settled in the sport and now my kids and family has become more important to me.” (more…)

Schleck Not Confirmed For 2015 Paris-Nice

The 2015 season started with a rocky patch for Frank Schleck. Much to the dismay of his fans, the senior Schleck brother has not been confirmed for 2015 Paris-Nice.

Frank was really hopeful to come up with a spectacular performance at Paris-Nice this year but it was his unfortunate injury that ruined his chances at the championship. The Trek rider met with a bad crash on the initial day of Ruta Sol which left him with a severe quadricep muscular hematoma.

It led his team to declare that the rider won’t be able to participate in Paris-Nice this time.

The Schleck senior is wise enough to understand the situation.

“I’m recovering yet it isn’t as speedy as I hoped for”, stated Frank while discussing about his non-participation in Paris-Nice.

“I am still in a painful situation and it aches to walk- however it feels tad better while I am on my bike. Thus, I would be capable of training for something like 2 hours on road now yet certainly this isn’t sufficient to gear up for an esteemed race such as Paris-Nice.” (more…)
