An early race crash in 2012 hindered his season and he was never able to get back to his best, calling time on his career after crashing on stage three of the 2014 Tour de France, as the peloton rode into London.
Schleck gained glory early in his career, winning the best young rider classification at the 2007 Giro d’Italia at the age of 21. He won the same classification at the Tour de France three times from 2008 to 2010.
His brother Frank will join him in retirement at the end of the current season.
