Equipo Kern Pharma’s rider Vojtěch Řepa retires from professional cycling. The Czech will no longer be part of the team as he has decided to take a new path in his life. The pharmaceutical outfit fully supports the decision and wishes him a good future.
After weeks of reflection, Equipo Kern Pharma and Vojtěch Řepa have agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect, as he explains: “I announced this decision to the team and we have agreed to terminate the contract by mutual agreement”.
“I would like to clarify that I have decided to end my professional cycling career and not cycling as a sport itself. Paradoxically, I am ending my career in a moment that cycling brings me the most fulfillment in life”, says Vojtěch Řepa.
“I would like to thank my family, friends, fans and sponsors for the huge support I have felt throughout the years, particularly Equipo Kern Pharma”, adds.
Juanjo Oroz, Equipo Kern Pharma’s general manager, states: “We would like to thank Vojtěch Řepa for his effort, commitment and honesty during the last three years. We are happy for him and we wish him a great new start”.
