Those who are contemplating retirement will not find Frank Schleck among them as he is still targeting a win at the Tour de France.
This would be his 15th
season as a professional rider. Being from Luxembourg, he is still going on in his cycling career and wishes to pursue it further. Known to be part of the Trek Factory Racing team, he is now heading into the fifteenth season with his focus planted in Tour de France firmly this year
. He is known as a veteran in the cycling community, now 35 years of age. Last year was difficult for him, but he was able to gain a win at a stage category in the Vuelta a Espana.
Many would have thought that this year would see Frank is taking a backseat. (more…)
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…)
The stage winner of Tour de France, Gert Steegmans will be adding to his sprinting speed and the strength for the Classics at the Treck Factory for 2015. The Belgian cyclist confirmed about the final signing with American team.
After he was no more retained by the Omega Pharma, he has been in search of a contract and thus got the eleventh hour slot of WorldTour squad. He says that he is very happy to become a part of a team in 2015. He had been training very hard for the past few weeks and now he can concentrate more on practice as he need not worry about contracts anymore. (more…)
