Team Giant-Alpecin announces the retirement of Caleb Fairly (USA) from professional racing with this year’s Amgen Tour of California being the last race of his 10-year career. Fairly has played an integral role in helping and supporting the team throughout the races in order to achieve success.
His decision came after much thought and discussion with people closest to him. « The past 10 years spent racing bikes has been an incredible journey,” said Fairly. « I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to race my bike at the highest level of the sport. I will end this chapter of my time in cycling far richer for the incredible people I’ve gotten to know and work with. A huge thank-you to all my teammates and every staff member who joined me along the way. You are the ones who made this journey so amazing. »
« I will be forever appreciative to the team owners who afforded me the opportunity to race for their teams, including Iwan Spekenbrink. Now, I will take some time to enjoy the birth of our first child after California with my wife, and I am very excited to begin the next phase of my cycling career. »
« Caleb has been an important member of the team and we fully support his decision, » explained coach Rudi Kemna (NED). « He has been part in Team Giant-Alpecin’s major successes and has offered a great deal of experience to the team. It was a pleasure to watch his commitment and passion towards his teammates and to the sport that he has given so much to, and we want to thank Caleb for that. We understand everything must come to an end at some point and we wish him all the best for the future and in his career. »
