Any of our more cycling literate posters aware of his work? Is he any good?
Very talented with a lot of speed to burn. Probably the best thing to come out of the Isle of Mann since ever (I could be and probably am wrong). Very much a multiple Tour de France stage winner. However as chubb said he can be bit of a dick, got disqualified in a race in California earlier in the year for basically holding onto the team car back up to the bunch after a flat and took the win before the DNQ.
All of Britain's best cyclists are Welsh, Scottish (and born in Malta), half-Australian but born in Belgium and raised in London, or from the Isle of Mann.
