I only knew the moment I signed my first contract.
Greatest racing memory:
It has to be my first professional win at the Tour of Qatar in what was only my second race a professional. I won against the guys who up until that point I had only seen on TV.
Race I dream of winning:
UCI World Road Race Championships
If I wasn't a pro cyclist:
I think I would be a car mechanic or maybe even a bike mechanic
