Andrew Talansky (Cannondale-Drapac) has announced that he will come out of retirement to compete in Triathlon.

The American had announced a month ago that he was going to retire from cycling at the end of the 2017 season. On September 5, the rider pointed at a change of profession and he now confirmed it through Instagram.

"After a short, restful break, I’m officially un-retired and ready to share my next chapter! Growing up in Florida I swam and ran cross country competitively before picking up cycling. See where this is headed? Triathlon, and what’s often considered the ultimate test of mind, body, and spirit: Ironman," he said next to a picture of him in a lake.

"Most often in life we are pulled towards the logical path, but I've always preferred to let my heart and intuition lead me. I’m fortunate to be able to follow my passion--that which inspires and motivates me--and take on the challenge of venturing into the unknown."

Talansky said that he is following his new passion and that soon he will also use it for good reasons. "As I enter the world of Triathlon and Ironman I’ll be supported by a great group of partners who share my values, excitement, and commitment to this new adventure," he explained. "I am also looking forward to using this platform to further my work with charitable causes that I feel strongly about.

"With much to learn I’ll be in Hawaii checking out #IMKONA next week. Please say hi if you see me swimming, riding, running or out and about with my family and I hope you’ll follow along here to share in the journey."
