Axel Merckx will retire after the Tour de France this summer, he told the Belgian magazine Cyclosprint. "Perhaps still some criteriums, but my real job of being a cyclist ends with the Tour," he said.
Merckx signed a one-year contract with T-Mobile Team, after previously announcing that he would retire at the end of last season when his former team, Team Phonak, folded.
"If I were not married, then I would continue for a year or two," he said. "But that is not the case, and so I will stop. I stop for my children and my wife, they are the determining factors."
Until then, however, Merckx, 34, has a full program. He is scheduled to ride Paris-Nice, the Belgian Classics, the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France.
