Alberto Losada retires from road cycling

Katusha-Alpecin's rider Alberto Losada is retiring from road racing and will face a new challenge in another cycling discipline from 2018.

The rider wasn't offered a contract extension by the team and that encouraged him to take the decision to leave road cycling for good. The 35 year old Spaniard already has new projects for next season.

"It is certain that I will not continue in road racing, I can say that now," said the rider to Spanish newspaper Marca. "I'm building my own company linked to cycling that will include training, biomechanics, physiotherapy, travel, store, etc.) and I will continue in competition in the MTB Marathon at a high level."

The rider was the last Spaniard remaining at Katusha-Alpecin after the retirement of Joaquim Rodriguez and Angel Vicioso. During his career at the professional level, he appeared in six Giro d'Italia's, three Tour de France's and seven Vuelta a España's.
