After finishing 3rd in the U23 national championship time trial, Taylor joined the Slipstream Sports development team and rode with them for two seasons while also participating in several trips with the national team to Europe and South America. In those two years he learned heaps about racing at the higher levels of the sport. After graduating from the espoir ranks Taylor joined his first pro team, V Australia, where we learned a whole new language (Australian) while spending time Down Under racing with the team.
While not riding his bike Taylor enjoys spending time outdoors. He also has new-found love: cooking.
