Dierckxsens to hang it up in July

Ludo Dierckxsens will call it quits as a professional cyclist at a retirement party in Tessenderlo's Grote Markt on July 3. A two man time trial and criterium will be the highlights of the day, which will farewell one of Belgium's more colourful cyclists. A late starter as a pro, Dierckxsens won Pais-Bourges and the Belgian road championships in 1998, a stage in the Tour de France in 1999 and the GP d'Ouverture La Marseillaise in 2003. He will continue to race for Landbouwkrediet-Colnago until the end of his career.
