Paul Voss retires after not finding a new team

by CyclingTips

German Paul Voss announced his retirement today, according to Radsport. The 30-year-old race with Bora-Argon 18 the past two seasons, but was not offered a spot on the new Voss Bora-hansgrohe team.

“It’s too bad, but you have to accept that,” he said.

Voss said he felt 2016 was his strongest season. He wore the KOM jersey in the Tour de France and won the Rad am Ring race in July.

“Last year I knew my strongest season,” he says. “Maybe not in terms of victories, but in terms of my performance.”

But it seems Voss was a casualty of Ralph Denk signing Peter Sagan, who brought multiple riders with him from the Tinkoff team.
