Glomser contemplates retiring

Austrian Gerrit Glomser is thinking of retiring, after being informed by Lampre that he wouldn't be offered a new contract, reports Austrian TV broadcaster ORF. The 30-year old Glomser dropped out of the Vuelta and has given up his place on the World Championships team.

Glomser's manager Toni Rominger is investigating possibilities for him, but Glomser said, "When I start somewhere, then I set high goals. I don't believe I can accomplish these goals if I'm not on the right team. Either I will take something that fulfills my expectations or I will retire from the sport as an active cyclist."

He puts the chances of continuing his career at 40 percent.
