This season saw Fränk Schleck, brother of Andy Schleck, announce his retirement from professional cycling, thus calling time on an impressive 16-year career.
His final race was at the Il Lombardia and ever since then, he has been adjusting to a new life away from the sport in retirement.
Speaking to Radsport News, the Tour de France podium finisher told the news outfit that he is yet to fully come to terms with the decision he has taken, as he still very much trains like a pro.
He also says he has this feeling of not been able to realize the enormity of his decision. He however believes that reality would set in when the training camps of teams open and the races begin.
The 30-year old also spoke to the news outfit of a few of his future plans, one of which includes remaining within the cycling sport.
