Veteran Dane Lars Michaelsen will retire after Paris-Roubaix.

The CSC stalwart has twice finished fifth in the "Hell of the North" and last year helped team-mate Fabian Cancellara win the race.

Michaelsen has accepted he was off the pace in the recent Tour of Valencia but is hoping to recapture his form for a final swansong on April 15.

Michaelsen, who turns 38 next week, won a stage of the 1997 Vuelta a España as well as the Belgian semi-classic Gent-Wevelgem in 1995.

He has ridden for the Danish team for the last five years after previous spells with Catavana Corbeil, Festina, TVM, Française des Jeux and Team Coast.
