Italian Manuel Quinziato has confirmed his retirement at the end of the 2017 season. The BMC rider said that he took this decision during the past winter.

The 37 year old rider had already said last weekend that this was his last Paris-Roubaix and later confirmed his retirement to the website Sportnews.bz. "From the beginning of the year I've known that every race I do is the last one at a specific location, because the decision was taken during the last winter.

"I think it's very nice to be able to decide for yourself when it is enough. To be able to do this after 16 years of being professional and still with a good condition is priceless."

His last Paris-Roubaix was extra special for him because his teammate and friend Greg Van Avermaet took the victory. "For me it was the first time that a teammate won a monument. That's why that race was very special," he commented.

The current Italian Time Trial champion also got his Master Degree in Law last month.
