32 year old Ted King, will say good bye to the European pro peloton, at the end of the 2015 season. The American who has been on the radar of European professional cycling for the past 7 years has announced that this season will be his last.

The Cannondale-Garmin rider who begun his career in Europe in 2009 said “I’ll forever love this sport and consider myself grateful to have earned such an international career”. King rode professionally in the US, where online gambling is making its way into more states under US gambling laws, with Bissell, for 3 years.

He then leapt over to Europe where he joined the Cervélo Test Team in 2009 then the Cannondale-Liquigas in 2011. As a professional cyclist, King was another American, who happened to race in the Tour de France. Fellow American super cyclist, Lance Armstrong, won the Tour de France 7 times until he was found out to popping pills and was stripped of his medals 2 years ago.

King also participated in the Giro d’Italia, UCI world championships, and monuments such as Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. King said he has had such memorable cycling experiences such as his first grand tour with the Roubaix velodrome – his first victory, and his first world championships as a United States representative.

According to US gambling news, King admitted that he was “ grateful to spend my last pro season on an American team. Across the board I’m extremely happy here — my teammates, the directors, sponsors, camaraderie, and obviously the fans are all greater than I could have expected”.

King plans to continue cycling, which, by the way, is one of the most popular sport in China, even if he has retired from professional cycling. “Though I’m stepping away from pro racing at the end of the season, I still love riding my bike and will continue to do plenty of that. Where early season meant the spring classics I’ll now look for a classic adventure with the bike very much at its center” said King.
