Your ‘job’ is pretty exhilarating. Can you explain what it feels like and what drives you?
I think this is one of the most adrenaline fuelled things that you can do. Just going on a bike gets the adrenaline going anyway so to move at a certain speed is not something you do everyday. To think about it makes me really enjoy this sport. Of course sometimes you struggle and you don't have fun, you crash and have pain and you have to get back on the bike but this sport is really special. Thinking about it gives extra value to what I am doing [with my life]. There is the pressure to do well and I feel it…but at the moment not too much! I think real pressure will come when you need to win a championship and there are some vital moments to deal with.
