Speaking to Team Sky, he admits he ‘feels at home’ with the team.

It really is one big happy family where my relationship with Team Sky is concerned, so I couldn’t be more delighted, I feel at home with the Team. I’ve known Dave (Brailsford), Rod (Ellingworth) and Fran (Millar) for years, since I was 17, so it’s great that I’ll be continuing to work alongside those guys and the rest of the Team.
