Cycling goals for 2012: Help develop the young guys on our Elite team, and stay rubber side up myself!

Best result to date: Would have to be winning National Crit Champ as an U16 beating Mr Wiggins!

Best performance to date: Winning Surrey 5 day stage race a couple of years ago, team was super and my form was HOT!

When I’m not cycling or thinking about cycling I like to: Eat good food, and drink nice wine with friends and family, enjoy Film and HBO series i.e Sopranos, The Wire (etc)

If the great goddess of cycling granted you just one wish per year, what would this be for 2012? For the RST racing teams to be successful and for the riders to continue to develop.
