The 2015 season begins !

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!

Happy New Year 2015!

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 !

New Contract with Team Sky

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
and staff.

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.
