I knew I wanted to be a professional cyclist when…

When I was watching television as a young child and saw the races like Giro d’Italia and Tour de France and I dreamed of participating one day.

My greatest racing memory is…

Racing at the Olympic Games in Rio.

The race I dream of winning is…

A stage in a Grand Tour.

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

Probably a photographer.
