  • Change of environment...Spring Racing Carnival - love it! #ghmumm

  • Should I do....Australia... Brazil... California... France... Mexico... Thailand or the UK..? 🤔#letape #stayactive @letapebytourdefrance
  • My old ‘SFR climb’...how many 5’ efforts at 50rpm have I done up here over the years...? More than I can count. The view is nicer at less than 4.5w/kg. And at 3C...there’s no one around 😌 #cadelroadrace #oakley #girohelmets
  • From the first sportsman who adorned my bedroom walls...30 years later through ‘The Captains Ride’ we were bought together: ‘Sport reveals character. It doesn’t build it.’ - so so true! 
Thank you for all you do through the Steve Waugh Foundation (I am...I have...I was helped)
  • ‘Pedalando coi Campione’ 120 ex-pro’s team with 480 riders... Us? 76th of 120 teams - 36.69km/h average speed/53y.o average age😳 #bravo #vittoriatires  #bergamo #ride_bmc
  • Thanks for having us Paris..the greatest people we meet are those who keep us young...

Getting into riding

I got my first bike (with training wheels) aged two.

Favourite climb

Albula Pass in the Swiss Alps, for the peace and tranquillity.

Preferred coffee

Double espresso
– small and strong.

On staying motivated

It’s more a case of I would go crazy if I DON’T ride!

Pre-race rituals

I like to take my time, making sure everything is perfect.

Always in my jersey pockets

My phone in a leather pocket and a small Italian Army Knife.
