Kurt Van De Wouwer (Unibet.com) will retire at the end of this year, reports Sportwereld.be. Van De Wouwer has had an anonymous season, with a ninth in the Tour du Finistère his best result.
"It's been nice," said Van de Wouwer to Sportwereld. "I've never been a big winner, but I've gotten what I could out of my career." Van de Wouwer's best year as 1999, when he performed well in the Tour de France. "Then I finished three times in the top 10 in four mountain stages. That was an unbelievable experience. The Tour de France remains a fantastic memory."
All of the Belgian's UCI wins came in 1997, when he was riding for Vlaanderen 2002. That year, he won the Circuito Montanes, and the prologue and stage 3 in the Hofbrau Cup. He has been a pro since 1994 and ridden for Lotto, Vlaanderen, Quick.Step, and Mr. Bookmaker.com (Unibet.com).
