37 year-old Giovanni Lombardi has officially announced the end of his professional racing career. Sunday, after 14 years and 42 wins, the Italian of Team CSC will race for the last time in Valencia.

Lombardi's biggest win came on the track, when he took gold in the individual points race during the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Often working as a lead-out man for sprinting greats Mario Cipollini and Erik Zabel, in the last years Lombardia has become a close friend and personal adviser to Ivan Basso.
