Martin is a genuine team player capable of remarkable personal performances, especially in the time trial. Martin started riding with his brother Peter when he was 13, dividing his time between ice hockey in the winter and bike riding in the summer. Martin has a calm and thoughtful personality, loves music, and enjoys making time to read a good book. He’s quite attached to his family and proud of his Slovak origins and the culture of his country, which he thinks is “the most beautiful in the world”.
For 2016, Martin wants a similar season to the previous, except for one thing: “I will start early and finish late in the year, as I want to always be there for the team. My program will be pretty much the same and I hope things will go like in 2015, minus the collarbone fracture.”
