Peron set to retire

After 14 years in the pro peloton, Italian Andrea Peron will retire after this weekend's Giro di Lombardia and Trofeo Città di Borgomanero. The 35 year old Peron, who went pro in 1993, raced for Team Polti, Motorola, La Française des Jeux, ONCE and Fassa Bortolo during his career, and has been with Team CSC since 2002.

Peron spent much of his career as a domestique, but he did post several wins during his time in the professional peloton: the Italian National time trial championship in 2001, Firenze-Pistoia in 2003, the overall and points competitions, and stage one of the 1996 Vuelta a Castilla-Leon, and several North American races in his early career.
