A stroke of bad luck prevented Matt Brammeier (Synergy Baku Cycling Project) from the possibility of kicking off his new contract with a bang at the Tour de Langkawi.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
