Sad News for 28 y.o. Champion Niels Albert

Albert, who read from a letter during the press conference, said retiring was the only option because of the health condition.

“The bike has always been the biggest passion of my life, but after six years, I have to abruptly give up my professional life,” he said, according to a Sporza report.”

The 28-year old Belgian has the condition which, when in competition, could cause a fatal heart attack. “Much sooner than I had anticipated I have to end my career,” the two times world champion declared emotionally at a press conference.”
