Aitor Pérez Arrieta calls it quits

Basque pro Aitor Pérez Arrieta has decided to put the bike away for good after nine seasons as a pro.

The 35-year-old from Zegama, Gipuzkoa, has enjoyed a stellar career after emerging through the youth ranks of Caja Rural and then Cafés Baqué at the start of the century. He went on to represent top-level teams like Caisse d'Epargne, Footon-Servetto and Lampre for a number of years, but has spent the last year riding on the domestic amateur circuit in the colours of Gios Deyser-Leon Kastro.

While wins have proved hard to come by for the strong all-rounder, he has completed all three Grand Tours, coming close to taking a stage win at the 2010 Tour de France.

Writing on his Facebook account, Arrieta said he's been "privileged to have been able to do what I like the most", and that he'd like to thank "everyone. The sport directors, my training group, my friends, sponsors, my parents and my family".

Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many choices
out there that I'm completely confused .. Any tips? Many thanks!
