You made me check and I'm actually surprised he isn't a meme level conti rider yet. Still, going out at the WT level is a much better way to go out.Gracias Bala.
He probably had the class to keep riding until Rebellin's age.
Been a fan since 2005 when he beat Armstrong on the first mountain stage of the Tour, in a sprint, which was unheard of. I was 13 at the time, I already regarded myself as a veteran cycling fan, but I hadn't seen a rider like him yet. Never thought I would still have the pleasure of watching him ride at 30. Gonna miss him.
Wauw, that completely aligns with my experience with him, even the age numbers are exactly the same!
