HÀ NỘI — Cyclist Nguyễn Thành Tâm has decided to retire from road racing to move to the BMX category.
Tâm, who is one of Việt Nam’s best sprinters on the road, left the Lộc Trời Group team early this week and will ride for An Giang’s BMX team.
The national team member competed in BMX for short time before he switched to road racing.
“Being a road cyclist means that I have to be away from home regularly,” said Tâm. "I am now a married man and I want to spend more time with my family. An Giang team is based in Tịnh Biên District which is near my home." — VNS
