To have a tour under his name is big achievement in itself. His career saw many ups and downs which was exciting in itself. Retirement has its own joys and he can do many things which was not possible for him to do at the time of his cycling days but now he has got plenty of time to fulfil all his desires which he for so long wanted to fulfil. He gave everything to the world of sport and to cycling especially.
