Swiss CX champion Julien Taramarcaz retires

by CyclingTips

Swiss national champion Julien Taramarcaz (ERA-Curcus) is retiring from cyclocross racing at the age of 29.

“It was a difficult, but an informed decision,” Taramarcaz said.

“I love cyclocross, but I had a very difficult year behind us and that makes it financially more difficult. I also have a family and at some point you have to make a choice. I say goodbye to my life as a racer. To cyclocross and the people it brought to me over the past three years, I am very thankful.”

Other than the national title he had only one win this season, at the Cyclocross International Sion-Valais. His best results this season were ninth at the Brico Cross Geraardsbergen and fourth at the SOUDAL Classics – Cyclocross Leuven.

He finished sixth at the 2013UCI World Championship, and finished 19th at the 2017 UCI World Championship in Bieles.
