Piil thinking of retirement

Jakob Piil's season with T-Mobile has not gone the way the Dane had planned. It has been so bad, in fact, that he is thinking of calling it quits after this year.

"If I am to continue, then I need some successes, instead of constantly having the feeling that I am riding into the wind," he told the Danish paper 24timer. "Things should change over the summer so that I will be in the position of looking forward to the races in the fall. If it doesn't work out, then I'm not interested anymore.

"When it gets to be August or September, I wall start to talk to the T-Mobile management about a contract for next year," he said. That will give me two months to think about whether to end my career or not."
