After 16 years, I’m proud to announce that 2019 will be my final year as a professional road cyclist. Looking back on my career it’s very gratifying to note the individual successes, as well as being a major component in victories for my team mates. Being a key part of these victories has certainly been a career highlight and motivated me to perfect the role of a lead out rider.   Looking back, I have had a very fulfilling career as a professional cyclist both on the track and road. During this time I have been particularly lucky to have had many family members and friends.
