Favourite Event or Tour or Race or Stage in which you have competed? Why?
I would have to say the Madison because it s so hectic! You have to be concentrating every second of the race or it will end up in disaster. Also I love track racing because you get a massive kick out of the atmosphere in the small arena when the crowds are massive!

I tore my cartilage in my right knee in 2010 which forced me of the bike for 4 and a half months!
