I knew I wanted to be a professional cyclist when…

Probably when I got my first win in 2012. With more and more success, I knew it was what I wanted to do.

My greatest racing memory is…

Winning my home race, the Tour of Austria.

The race I dream of winning is…

TBC

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

A teacher or a policeman.
