_Q&A

Your favourite race?

My favourite race is Paris Roubaix, I have always loved watching it.

Your best or most memorable result in pro cycling?

My most memorable result so far in pro cycling was probably the national championships at the end of last year. In the end I was a bit disappointed not to win but it was a great race and a sign of good things to come in the future.

What have you learnt from your first ever Tour de France?

My first Tour de France was pretty special, I learnt a lot from being in the room with Matej, seeing him win the two stages from the breakaway and then hearing how he managed it and what was going through his mind was really interesting. I can see myself doing a similar thing in the years to come.

What are your personal ambitions for the season?

I would really like to be in top shape for the classics, to help Sonny and Matej and also take my own opportunities. I feel like last year I stepped up in these races from the year before so hopefully we can make another step and get a result. After the spring I’ll come into the Tour to help the teams GC aspirations and take my own chances in some breakaways. It would be great if I could win something this year.

If you could pick one race to win in your career, which would it be?

Paris Roubaix

You are a versatile rider with a lot of possibilities. Which type of rider do you think you will be?

I see myself being a classics rider in the years to come, there’s so much to learn from those races and I feel like I’m just getting started with them.

What do you enjoy doing away from the bike?

Off the bike I watch a lot of films and play probably too much playstation. I’ve got decent skills at table tennis and drink a lot of coffee to be honest my life is pretty simple.
