Tom Leezer says goodbye: his finest moments
Liège-Bastogne-Liège was the last race as a professional cyclist for Tom Leezer. He says goodbye to the peloton after thirteen years. These are the three finest moments of his career.
World Championships in Qatar
“I like to think back to the World Championships in Qatar. First we had a good team time trial and then I had a good road race. I am often reminded of that late attack in the final. I received a lot of attention and respect for this, also from colleagues. That is very special for me.”
“The win with Dylan Groenewegen on the Champs-Élysées was the highlight of our sprint trajectory at that moment. We were working on it for a few years. It was very special to win in Paris.”
“It was nice to be there when Primoz Roglic finished on the podium of the Giro d’Italia.”
“In my career I have achieved one individual victory, but the team performance comes to surface sooner when I think about my highlights. As a team, we have put a lot of time and energy into those achievements. It is very nice that I have been part of that. I look back on my career with a very good and proud feeling. I got everything out of it.”
