Although he started the sport at a relatively late age, he does not feel it has hindered his career in any way. "I know I'm a relative latecomer. It was just the position I was in. When you grow up in New Zealand, cycling is a non-supported sport. You do it on your own because you love it. You go to races out of your own pocket because you love it." (, 17 Nov 2011)
