I still cannot walk around anywhere in Belgium.

I have decided to give up competition. I cannot train properly for the Tour de France which I had hoped to ride for the last time as apotheosis to my career. Doctors are forbidding me to ride anymore in high level competition and I bow to them.

I earned more than other riders, but even in my best year I never grossed more than about $300,000.

I hated losing. Being defeated made me sick, I couldn’t stand it.

We’re not millionaires, but we live well.
