Mickaël Pichon (Bouygues Telecom) has decided to end his career at the end of the 2005 season, according to cyclismag.com. Pichon was the victim of a serious crash in last year's Dauphiné Libéré and says he has never really recovered his confidence after that. "In the French Cup races it is necessary to be able to follow when the race speeds up and I was finding this difficult," he told the site.

Pichon hasn't ruled out remaining in cycling in some way, but says he is unlikely to reconsider.
