Team Sunweb has announced the retirement of Roy Curvers from professional cycling to take up a position in the coaching staff of the team.

Curvers will hang his bike at the end of Paris-Tours after a 12-year career and was instrumental in important moments for the team like its first-ever grand tour stage triumph at the 2011 Vuelta a España, the victories of John Degenkolb in Milano-Sanremo and Paris-Roubaix and more than 70 wins.

Curvers will remain in the world of cycling as he will take up the role of coach in the team, where he can use his vast experience. "I’m of course sad that my racing career comes to an end, but I’m really happy that my journey with Team Sunweb does not finish here and that I can remain in the world of cycling," Curvers commented.

"We’ve had a lot of nice memories together and I was part of the team’s first Grand Tour and Monument wins, which was really special. I’ve stayed with the team my whole career and that’s because we have continuously managed to find new challenges and once I decided I was going to retire, we came up with another nice new challenge. I’m really looking forward to beginning my time as a coach with the team and helping our young guys progress through their careers."
