James started racing aged 6 in London and soon became competitive. Last year aged 18 James had a strong year winning the Vuelta Pamplona GC a 8th place in Bizkaiko Itzulia GC and 5th in Tour of Scotland GC along with further stage placings against tough competition, riding for HMT with JLT Condor. 

James is a climber, however he can also be versatile and maintain position in the flatter or more technically demanding races. 

 

‘’I am very happy to start my pro career with Burgos BH pro cycling. The people in the team are friendly and they have a good race calendar. ‘’Its also a team where I feel that I can develop step by step, which is important being so young.’’

 

On the bike, James most enjoys the hard days in the mountains with friends and races in the warmth with mountains is his preference. 

James currently lives in Mallorca and is coached by Vicente Reynes (ex Pro cyclist). 

 

His biggest dreams are to ride well in the Grand tours in the future and to make the 2020 Tokyo Olympics but for now he will focus on developing step by step in Burgos BH.
