Follow Fabian Cancellara through his final season in new Eurosport series

It's Fabian Cancellara's last year in the professional peloton and Eurosport have been behind the scenes with the Swiss rider for a six-part documentary series

If you're not quite ready to say goodbye to Fabian Cancellara just yet then you're in luck. Eurosport have gained access to the Trek-Segafredo rider's memorabilia room and have produced a six-part documentary series with the Swiss rider.

In the 12-minute episodes, to be shown on Eurosport throughout the season, the Classics legend will discuss the highs and lows of his 16-year career, including the rumours of having a motorised bike at Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders in 2010.

“I was on the couch seeing all this [unfold]. I remember I had a Belgian beer

next to me - in front of ‘the bike’. I was looking at the news and was like “Oh damn you’re idiots!” If they want, they can come to my home and take my bike, because it is there,” says Cancellara.

In episode one, Cancellara gives us a guided tour of his favourite bits of memorabilia, but says the one thing missing is something pink from the Giro d'Italia. He will race the Italian Grand Tour in may with an eye on taking the first leader's jersey by winning the opening time trial on May 6.

The documentaries will be shown on Eurosport's TV channels and Eurosport Player over the next six months.
