“Colbarilli is forced to end his professional cycling career because of the Italian referee”
Sony Colbrelli according to the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport He decided to end his career as a professional bike driver. The 32-year-old Italian collapsed in March after a stage in the Tour of Catalonia. An investigation showed Colbrelli had an irregular heartbeat and a pacemaker was placed on him.

For example, Christian Eriksen, who happened with Colbrelli in the European Football Championship in 2021, had to look for a new employer because he was no longer allowed to play for Inter in Italy. Eriksen left for Manchester United in England, where he is allowed to perform top sports with a pacemaker.

On November 15, a press conference is scheduled for Bahrain Victorious team, Colbrelli’s team. There, the news of Colbrilli’s farewell may be officially announced.
Colberelli, 32, became a professional at Colnago-CSF Bardiani in 2012. After 4 years with the Italian national team, Colbrilli moved to Bahrain – Merida (now Bahrain – Victorious). In 2017, he won the Brabantse Pijl, but a real breakthrough followed in 2021. Colbrelli won the Paris-Roubaix, the European Championship, the Italian Championship, and the Benelux Tour that year.
