Team CSC's Lars Michaelsen has announced that he will stop riding after Paris-Roubaix. "Then I will retire. I have decided that in advance," he told Het Laatste Nieuws.
Michaelsen, 38, just finished the Vuelta a Valenciana, but was not satisfied with his performance there, saying he could not find his rhythm. He hopes to do well in this his final spring and even changed his season planning. "Usually I am competing in January, but for this last spring offensive, we decided to start much later this time."
