Hi All, I’m really happy to announce my new 2 year contract with Team Sky…
I’ve been with Team Sky since the start and five years on it really does feel like home. To keep that
relationship going was really important so I’m delighted to be staying for another two years.
I already have one eye on next season and with this team I know I can deliver some good results.
I really do feel part of the foundations of this team, having grown up with so many of the riders
I’ve known many of them since the start of my career and have been guided by the likes of Sir Dave Brailsford and Rod Ellingworth for years, which has made me the rider I am today.
With the team’s support I’ve been able to grow and develop as a rider and by staying here I know that will continue.
Very happy to announce I’ve partnered with leading insurance brokers Stackhouse Poland for the year ahead. looking forward to it!
It’s a shame i could not take the win, but thanks for all the messages of support ! And well done to Adam and all who participated in the Sportive in shocking conditions. I’m now currently on my way back from Hamburg and the Vattenfall classics readying myself for a new block of training and end of season racing!
Leading the group up Box Hill
Its been a while since I have posted an update though I’m sure you can understand we are slap bang in the middle of the season now and the races and training are coming thick and fast!
First up I have to mention Froomey and how much I felt for him after he had to leave the Tour. Chris and the team had worked so hard to make sure that they were in the best shape to win again, but as a professional you have to be philosophical sometimes and this is bike racing! I’ve spoken about it a few times injuries, and crashes are just a part of the job and you get on with it. But there is no doubt not having Froomey and Cav at the Tour is disappointing for everyone and what with AC out now it should make for a very interesting race. So I wish Richie and the guys the best of luck and currently it looks like its shaping up very well for the team.

Hello from Belfast everyone,
Sorry it’s been a while! I hope you are all enjoying the racing season so far… for me personally after last seasons injury, I am very happy with how the start to the season has gone.
My one main aim in the off-season was to be able to come out strong and start getting results straight away that way it would give me confidence from the off, so I put everything into starting well and I hope you have seen that I have had a good start and it has been getting better as the season has gone on! So my confidence is high at the moment and that helps me perform better as a bike racer.
