Axel Merckx, who was originally going to retire at the end of the year, but then extended his contract with Phonak for an extra season, might continue for another season anyway, despite Phonak folding. The Belgian rider told Sporza Radio that there's still a chance he will retire at the end of this season, "but I would like to stick with my decision to go for another year. I will see what happens. Once I have all the cards in my hand, I will decide it together with my family."
