Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) is hoping to add to his great 2014 season with his first stage win at the Tour de France. Van Avermaet will be riding for Tejay van Garderen at the Tour this year, but hopes to mix team duties with personal ambitions.
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.
