Elijzen swaps saddle for team car

Further evidence that I shall never understand this cycling game. After five years as a pro with Cofidis, Rabobank and for the last two years Omega Pharma-Lotto Michiel Elijzen has retired from racing to  join his old team as sports director. During his short career the Dutchman took two wins.


There must surely be any number of pros with fifteen years and more in the peloton who would love the chance to get in to a team car. Is five years long enough to acquire the necessary skills? What will the elder statemen in the team make of a twenty eight year old barking orders in to their ear piece?
