Garfoot retires from cycling

Australian rider Katrin Garfoot has announced her retirement with immediate effect. German-born Garfoot, 36, turned to cycling aged 29 and despite being a late entrant into the sport became one of the most successful time trial riders of her time. She won a silver in the Worlds road race last year and took bronze in the time trial event. The three-time national time trial champion bowed out with a gold medal in the time trial at the Commonwealth Games in April of this year.
