Hi All, It’s been a while since I updated the site but I’m back and fully into my training schedule for the 2016 season and very much looking forward to next years racing. So what have I been up to since my last races of 2015 in Japan? Well those of you who follow me on my Twitter and Instagram will probably of seen me trying as best I can to escape the winter weather in the UK ! Anyway here are a few pictures showing my travels since the season finished.
So I’m back in the saddle and racing again! Which It is a great feeling and now I’m looking forward to getting my form back up and trying to go better than my comeback race… Though 3rd place at the RideLondon-Surrey Classic has defo. given me confidence for the rest of my season.
And i must say a belated congratulations to Froomey and all the Team that won this years Tour De France, they are an inspiration to us all !
I am currently finalising my racing and training schedule for the remainder of 2015 season, so ill see you all on the road soon and as always thanks for the continued support!
Here is a quick one armed update from me… Thanks to all that have wished me well since my fall at this years Tour of Yorkshire a race that has a special place in my heart as I helped launch it and was a great supporter.
During the race I was feeling good and we were going along well then all of us a sudden one slick descent derailed the whole plan! This is bike racing and we move on….but all the well wishes mean a lot and I’m now back on the road to recovery after an operation on the shoulder.
So its back to the turbo trainer for me for a while and i’ll update you all with a return date asap!
So a little update for you: after two difficult days in Pais Vasco, I headed home for some R&R. I felt super fatigued going into this race and didn’t have the legs I needed to achieve the goals I wanted at the race.

It’s been a quick start for me in 2015 ! And its been great to be on the bike and mixing it up as much possible in the first races, however all this racing and traveling has left little time to sit down and write any blog updates on my progress and thoughts for this year! I have, however sat down with a number of publications and websites about my plans so I hope these recent interviews and features below will help fill you in!
I hope everyone had a great New Year, I really can’t wait for the 2015 season to get started. I had a lovely Xmas and NYE back in the UK before I head back to the Team Sky base in Mallorca for the rest of January. Got some good miles in today with Russ Downing and the weather was pretty good but a little on the chilly side !
As you may well of seen I returned to South Africa this November to ride with the Hot Chillee Team at the Coronation Double Century Race which is organised by the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust and starts in Swellendam it’s a brutal 200km team time trial with over 250 teams and over 2,700 riders so a big old event.
