Ambition: "Hopefully I've just qualified, maybe Dr OLIVA. With an Olympic medal hopefully, I mean that would be the dream, to do both." (bbc.com, 4 Apr 2017)
Memorable: "Riding for Wales in the Welsh skinsuit is something that has been one of the most memorable experiences for me. When I first rocked out the Welsh skinsuit in Delhi 2010 (Commonwealth Games), that was my first senior championships as well, and something that I'll remember for the rest of my life." (bbc,com, 4 Apr 2017)

PERSONAL CHOICE
"I had an offer I couldn't refuse really, from Cardiff University, to study my dream degree. It's something I've wanted to do for years and years. It was a difficult decision, leaving full-time bike riding as a living, to balance the student life." (bbc.com, 4 Apr 2017)
