I am an all-round strong rider, with a specialty in Classics and Stage Races. Riding for Giant Halifax in 2018 so far has helped me develop my racing skills in a harder, more competitive international environment. The opportunities to race abroad in Belgium, competing with the best riders in the world, has been an excellent experience; one which has helped me to continue developing as a rider and working towards my goal of becoming a professional rider.
