I came to Belgium in 2012 when I had the chance to race with EFC Omega Pharma Quickstep U23 team.

My dad and I competed in the british 12 Hour National Time Trial Championships when I was 15 years old. We both finished the full 12 hour distance, but then while driving the 250 mile journey back home in the night, we were so tired we decided it was best to pull the car over and catch some sleep on a park bench in some random village.
