He is the latest rider to call an early  end to their career due to a lack of options in a transfer market heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Former Olympic champion Jon Dibben has done so at the age of 26, while the AG2R pair Axel Domont and Clement Chevrier are both heading into the wine industry.
