Bruun Eriksen quits

Team CSC rider Thomas Bruun Eriksen has decided to end his professional career after this season.

"I've had some exciting and educational years as a professional rider, but I feel there are other things I'd like to do as well," said the 26 year-old Dane. "I haven't quite been fit enough nor had the motivation to continue at this level, and that is why I've made the decision to quit. I became a professional shortly after I'd finished my education and now I want to return to a regular job," added Bruun Eriksen, who has had two victories in his four years as a professional rider.

"It hasn't been an easy decision for Thomas, but I respect it because I know it's well thought through," commented his team manager Bjarne Riis. "Thomas has always delivered a solid effort for the team, at the same time as he's won some races on his own. I hope he's learnt something valuable to take with him in his future ventures. On behalf of the team I would also like to wish him the best of luck for the future."
