Tafi to end career after Roubaix

Andrea Tafi (Saunier Duval - Prodir) will finish his career in style just after Paris-Roubaix on April 10, 2005. The 38 year-old, who won in Roubaix in 1999, has decided the time was right to call it quits just after what he says is still his favourite race. "I have a long and beautiful career behind me. Therefore, it's time to turn the page, but I'll do everything I can to shine once more in the 'Hell of the North'," he said. The former Italian champion (1998) has also been victorious in the Tour of Lombardy (1996), Paris-Tours (2000) and the Tour of Flanders (2002).
