New team, new on point kit, what are you looking forward to with JLT Condor?

 

Looking forward to a lot more stage races abroad, Asia and America mainly, which will be a new experience

 

We’ve had a glimpse at your new ride for 2017. How does the Condor ride?

 

Once I had the position nailed then it rode great!

 

What will be your main focus in 2017?

 

Win a stage race

How do you think the domestic scene has changed over the last few years?

 

It’s become more professional and a better place for young riders.

 

How would you describe your 2016 season in the National Champs jersey?

 

I loved it, Crits are huge in the UK so to have the jersey felt great, and the all white bike was an added bonus as well

 

Who are your riders to watch in 2017?

Do you still find time to ride Cyclocross?

 

Not as much as I would like as I’m racing in Australia New Year’s Day, but I get out on the MTB or cross bike when I can in winter

 

What advice would you give to any budding racers?

 

Get a coach if you really want to improve!!
