Ride a bike. Road – Pinot, Bouhanni, Gallopin… the new retirees of the peloton

Every year many say goodbye to professional cycling! Time passes very quickly and unfortunately for around fifty runners from the 1st and 2nd leagues it is already time to turn their backs on the road and start a new chapter in their lives. After Vincenzo Nibali, Alejandro Valverde Or Philippe Gilbert In 2022, other very big names of the 21st century have decided to move on at the end of the 2023 financial year, and that is something we are particularly thinking about Peter Sagan (TotalEnergies) – who, however, will go mountain biking next year and is aiming to take part Olympic Games in Paris – And Greg Van Avermaet (AG2R Citroën Team), three-time world champion between 2015 and 2017 and 2016 Olympic champion.

Pinot, Gallopin, Bouhanni, Cherel… French cycling is losing great numbers

In French cycling, a large number of riders are retiring, and not least! Winner of 14 stages of the Grand Tours, Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ), Tony Gallopin (Lidl Trek) and Nacer Bouhanni (Team Arkéa-Samsic) played its last season in 2024. The Franc-Comtois, the Francilien and the Vosges, indispensable for a dozen years, will undoubtedly leave a big void. Less known to the general public, but highly valued by observers and like-minded people, such as runners Mikaël Cherel (AG2R Citroën Team), Matthew Ladagnous (Groupama-FDJ), Maxime Bouet, Laurent Pichon (Team Arkéa-Samsic), François Bidard And Pierre-Luc Perichon (Cofidis) also retired a few weeks ago, as did he Flavien Maurelet And Anthony Maldonadotwo training managers St. Michel-Mavic-Auber93.
