I’m very happy to be riding a Devinci bike for the third consecutive year. In the past, it has helped me achieve my best results, including my most memorable victory, the Tour of the Battenkill 2006.

I’m an aggressive rider who likes to attack at different stages of the race. Although I have very good sprinting abilities, I prefer to break away from the peloton earlier in the race. I perform at my best during criterium races and in hilly rides with steep and short uphill climbs. I choose my breakaways wisely to position myself to win the race. My Achilles’ heel, though, is that endurance prevents me from winning most stages.

Throughout the years, I’ve also participated in other sporting events, be it in cross-country skiing, mountain biking or short track skating. I captured a few podiums here and there but my passion for road cycling would never go away. Unfortunately, I had to give up on short track skating due to a fractured spine and an open ankle fracture. Since then, I’ve been focusing solely on road cycling.
