Dunno why, but I'm pretty surprised/shocked by this. Though I guess things haven't really been going his way recently...

Christophe Premont, he said he got an opportunity he couldn't refuse from the University of Louvain.

Riblon retires. Earlier this year, Lavenu told him he wouldn't get an extension and he couldn't find a new team. He turned pro with AG2R in 2005 and never switched teams.

He won Tour stages on both Ax-3 and L'Alpe.

He wants to be a firefighter, right?

Yes. He still tried to find a team but had plans to become a firefighter if that didn't work out.

I like it when riders have goals after their carreer. Some stories are pretty sad.

Danilo Napolitano retires. I'd forgotten just how many races he won in the first half of his career because he did so little after 2010.

Did he slow down dramatically or was he more a victim of the strengthening of sprint fields?
