Pro cyclist Frank Schleck marries in Mamer

One of the tiny nation of Luxembourg's most famous sons - professional road cyclist Frank Schleck - celebrated a religious wedding ceremony on Saturday, August 21st with Martine Schmid, who gave birth to their daughter Leea in April.

The couple were legally married on New Year's Eve 2009 at the City Hall in Mondorf, Luxembourg, but waited until summer to celebrate with friends and family at the Church of John the Baptist in Mamer, Luxembourg, built in 1723. Fellow cyclists including Kim Kirchen and Fabian Cancellara attended, as did Schleck's fellow cyclist brother Andy - Luxembourg's reigning Man of the Year. Andy escorted the bride to the church in a white convertible.

Forgoing traditional rice, confetti, or even bubbles, the couple emerged from the church under an arch of bicycle wheels held high by attendants, to waiting crowds cheering them on.

The pair were engaged last year while on vacation at the Lions Dive & Beach Resort in Bapor Kibra, Curacao - a Dutch island in the Caribbean Sea just north of Venezuela.
