Greg Van Avermaet, 37, a member of the AG2R CITROËN TEAM since 2021, has decided to retire at the end of the season.
“A great adventure is ending and I’m a little sad. This decision was very difficult to make, but when I look in the rear view mirror, I am extremely proud of my achievements.I gave the best of myself every day, simply so I would have no regrets. Not only did I enjoy my victories, but also the path leading up to them.I thank everyone who believed in me and helped me throughout my career. I am grateful to my fans who always supported me, even in difficult times.It is now time to devote myself to my wife and children, and to have a new direction in my life. I am hoping to find the same passion in this new phase.I would like to thank the AG2R CITROËN team for its confidence and for the team spirit in which I have evolved over three seasons. Until the end of the season, I will give my best to the team as I have done since the day I started cycling. I hope to achieve some good results.”
