Vicki Whitelaw retires - we'll miss you!

It's a sad day for me, as Australian rider Vicki Whitelaw announces her retirement.

Vicki has always been a fun cyclist to follow, one of those never-say-die riders who like to ride themselves into the ground, Jens!-style (you can see her palmares here).  But women's cycling fans should also have followed her for her fantastic blogs.  There have been whole races (I'm looking at you, Trophée d'Or!) where the only information we've had out of the race has come from Whitelaw's blogs - and I know I'm only one of many who have appreciated her insights into life backstage at races.

Her "So long pro cycling!" post talks about the reasons she's leaving - and I'm really pleased for her, because she is choosing to retire from a strong position, knowing it's her choice (isn't it great when riders can do that?) - and gives a bit of an idea of what she'll be doing post-racing.

For more about Vicki, check out my interview with her from last year - aka "Shut Up Legs!"

I say massive good luck for the future to Vicki - and to Dave!  Thanks for all the blogs, all the information & all the laughs!  Huge good luck in whatever comes next!
