A Rio Olympic champion ends his career

Rio Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet is ending his career as a professional cyclist at the end of the season.

It was the end of a great adventure and he was a little sad, the 37-year-old Belgian said on Wednesday. In addition to the triumph at Copacabana in 2016, the victory a year later at Paris-Roubaix is ​​one of the greatest successes of Van Avermaet's career. "I regret nothing. “I not only enjoyed my victories, but also the paths that led to them,” said the classics specialist.

Van Avermaet has been a professional cyclist for 18 years and has celebrated 41 victories so far. In 2016 and 2018 he wore the yellow jersey of the Tour de France for a total of eleven days.
