Last week, Doug Ollerenshaw announced on his blog that he was retiring from the professional peloton:
“At 28, there’s no doubt I could have kept riding for a number of years yet, but I was always determined to move on when I felt that I’d stopped markedly improving. Plus, it seems best to leave while I’m still having fun, as opposed to staying to the point where it just becomes a job.”
Doug is moving on and moving to
May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be ever at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields.
And until we meet again may god hold you in the hollow of his hand.
