Good luck Dougie

Posted on 29. Jul, 2008 by in profile

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 Atlanta, Georgia to pursue his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering. Go cheer for Doug in his last races starting with the  Portland Twilight Criterium on August 8th.  Raise a glass or better yet two in his honor.


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.
