Andy Schleck is gradually learning to make peace with his forced retirement. The young rider has declared to open up a bike shop in Itzig town of Luxembourg.
The 2010 Tour France champion comes across as a positive person who is striving towards a positive & meaningful future even when his potential cycling career met with a doom. As per the recent reports, the junior Schleck is all set to launch a bike shop – which somehow would be able to maintain his ties with his beloved sport.
“We would, certainly, be selling the Trek bikes”, stated Schleck who was a part of Trek Factory during his rider days. “The store won’t just be a mere lobby with the bikes at display.”
“Actually, we wish to offer a very valuable service. I am looking forward to channelize my skills & my very athletic experience and approach to customer service.
Andy would be launching the bike store in partnership with his dad-in-law Mr. Jeannot Delvaux & the new store has been entitled as “Andy Schleck-Schleck-Delvaux Cycles Associates”.
It was a persistent & stressful knee injury which forced the junior Schleck to get into retirement & bid adieu to his otherwise prospective career as a rider. He was compelled to take leave from the professional cycling sector at the final quarter of 2014. Andy was felicitated with the recognition of 2010 Tour France winner after the Spanish rider Contador (Alberto) was ripped of the honor given doping controversies in the year 2012.
However, the new bike shop with his dad-in-law is not the only project that Andy has in his mind. In one of his recent interviews, the junior Schleck brother has proposed about several commendable project plans- that include a museum, coffee shop & cycling school meant for children.
