"Exploring the world means trying new things, meeting new people, living a bit."
Marching to the beat of his own drum, Hugh started his career in a non-traditional fashion, leaving the comfort of British Cycling for a Spanish Professional Continental squad. He picked up the nickname “Huge” when a Giro d’Italia announcer mispronounced his name. The nickname stuck and, along with his signature tongue wag, highlight his ability to dig deep.
