Rigoberto Uran is still postponing retirement: “My life is on a bike” | sports

Rigoberto Urán has postponed his bicycle pension. The 35-year-old Uran initially wanted to stop after this season, but upon closer examination, he will be on for a few more years. “My life is on the bike,” said the Colombian of the US EF Education-EasyPost team, as he extended his contract.

Oran finished second behind Britain’s Chris Froome at the 2017 Tour de France. He was also a two-time runner-up in the Giro and at the 2012 London Olympics taking silver in the road race, behind Kazakhstan’s Alexander Vinokourov.

The Colombian rode both the Tour de France and the Vuelta this year, finishing 25th and ninth, respectively. At the beginning of September, he scored his first stage win at the Vuelta a España, which means he is now a hit in all the major rounds.

Uran finished the season with some top 10 places in the Italian one-day races. It caused the climber to reconsider his earlier decision to quit. My family loves it in Europe. I love the place here too, I love racing here. That’s why I decided to continue for a few more years.”
