I knew I wanted to be a professional cyclist when…

I only knew the moment I signed my first contract.

My greatest racing memory is…

It has to be my first professional win at the Tour of Qatar in what was only my second race a professional. I won against the guys who up until that point I had only seen on the TV.

The race I dream of winning is…

The UCI World Road Race Championships.

If I wasn’t a professional cyclist, I would be…

I think I would be a car mechanic or maybe even a bike mechanic.
