"I don't consider myself lucky to be a professional. I'm a pro because I worked for it. I'm not a pro because I was lucky, but I'm lucky to be where I am." "It's an unbelievable sense of achievement when you cross the line first, knowing all the hard work your team and yourself have put into the race, and everything leading up to it, has all been worthwhile. " "I want to keep winning - big, small, long, short, road, track, hard, easy - it doesn't matter, as long as the team or I are first across the finish line. I just love racing my bike! "
