End of career for Mathias Frank at the Swiss Championship
Mathias Frank, 34 years old, will finish his career on the Swiss roads. He will take part in the Grand Prix of the Canton of Aargau (June 4) and then in the Tour de Suisse (June 6-13). The third stage from Lachen to Pfaffnau will pass in front of his home before concluding 14 years of professionalism at the National Championships in Huttwil: "I couldn't have wished for a better end to my career than to finish on the roads of my country. I've experienced great things in the Tour de Suisse and I'm looking forward to the third stage that passes by my home."
