Damien Nazon, the elder of the two Nazon brothers, has opted to finish his career, aged 31. The French sprinter has 33 victories to his credit, including stages in the Dauphiné Libéré, Midi Libre, Criterium International and Tour of Belgium. He won two races this year, a stage in the Tour De Picardie and one in the Circuit De La Sarthe.
Nazon began his pro career in 1996 with Banesto, then rode for La Francaise des Jeux for three years before joining Bonjour. In 2003, Nazon stayed with that team that became Brioches la Boulangere, then joined Credit Agricole for the last two seasons of his career.
In future, Nazon will serve as road captain, trainer and directeur sportif of the Hagueneau club in France.
