Porte Concludes Season Early Given Fitness Issues

Aussie cycling star Richie Porte has decided to conclude his 2014 season early given serious health problems. The rider has not participated in any of the championships since Tour France this year.
“I could not come up with best health this time”, Porte noted. “I spoke to doctors in Manchester & we have discovered that I had mild pneumonia during the France Tour.”
Richie helped Froome in winning 2013 Tour France title & scored a number of great achievements for himself last year- including overall victory in Paris-Nice & 2nd position in Vuelta Pais Vasco & Criterium Dauphine.
