Age: 27
Place of Origin: Isle of Man
Sport: Cycling
Event: Road race
411: Won the Green Jersey in the 2011 Tour de France and the Rainbow Jersey in the 2011 World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Plans for the Summer Games:“I need a good team at the Tour de France and a good team at the Olympic Games… It’s not me winning the green jersey, it’s not me winning the Olympic Games. It’s Team Sky winning at the Tour de France and it’s Great Britain winning at the Olympics. So we need the best way to do that.” (road.cc)
