There's a specific topic for retirements.Serge Pauwels finishes his career
Serge Pauwels ends his carreer at almost 37. His best results are:
He was GVA's roommate and a strong domestique during the Olympic race in 2016, and he ends now as his teammate at CCC's. The team disbanding, him having had recent health issues + a lack of results and of course his age are the reasons for his retirement from active pro sports.
- a Giro stage win (a kind of dramatic one, because he got crossed by his own team's weird tactical decisions, but got the win later on because Bertagnolli was suspended)
- a 13th place in the Tour de France GC
- a stage + overall victory in Yorkshire.
Very likeable and intelligent guy, who will have no trouble finding new opportunities and challenges. If he can choose it, he stays close to cycling. His wife (who is very pretty, lucky Serge) is also an ex-rider and does some media stuff in cycling these days.

Haha I know. This was slightly better: View: https://twitter.com/UnoXteam/status/1317016422552403973That might be the least exciting rider presentation ever seen
I thought the minimum for WT teams was 25.So EF already lost 5 riders.
That means they will need to sign at least two new riders unless UCI will lower the minimum number of riders in the team which has been 27 for WT teams.
Maybe they'll announce some new riders in January or somewhen.
