Two Times U.S. National Champion Matthew Busche Retires

Two-time U.S. national champion Matthew Busche announced his retirement

“I’ve decided to close this chapter of my life and begin to write the next one,” he told the cycling press “Cycling has been an amazing journey and I certainly wanted it to last longer, but the time seems right for me to move on.”

The American came to the sport a little later than most, after an injury during his collegiate running career. He took to the bike well and in 2009 found himself racing on a top domestic team. After a year there he wound-up in Europe in the then ProTour with the Radioshack team.

In 2011 he surprised many, including himself, winning the U.S. professional road championship. He did so again in 2015, which he said validated his 2011 title for him.

Busche said the stress of searching for a contract contributed to his decision, and that although he had the opportunity to continue racing professionally, he decided the “time was right” to move on.

Matthew Busche rode for UCI Pro Continental Team UnitedHealthcare. Before that he rode for UCI ProTeam Trek–Segafredo.In 2009, he gained notoriety for his rapid rise from a Wisconsin-based amateur team to Team RadioShack within the course of one season. Busche was the 2011 and 2015 US National Road Race Champion.

Today, December 15th 2016 Matt Busche announced his retirement from professional cycling.

We wish him all the best for the future.
