Didier Cuche announces planned retirement

Ski champion Cuche announces retirement:
Quote:
Veteran downhill racer Didier Cuche has said he will retire at the end of the season.

The 37-year-old speed specialist from Le Pâquier in canton Neuchâtel called a news conference ahead of Saturday’s classic race on the feared Streif slope in the Austrian resort of Kitzbühel where he’s a four-time winner.

“Kitzbühel represents something for me and I decided to make my decision here. It’s not a decision that I took last night or today,” the former butcher said on Thursday.

“I’m in top form and I can still aspire to win races. It’s in this condition that I wish to retire from the World Cup.”
I wonder whether another aging Swiss champion will take the hint ...

I love Roger, and hope that he has many more victories ahead of him. But I would hate to see him slide down the rankings like Andy Roddick.
