Bahrain-Victorious will wear a special edition jersey for the upcoming Vuelta a España so as not to clash with the Spanish Grand Tour red leader's jersey as well as raise awareness around obesity and diabetes.

Bahrain is said to be one of the countries most affected by diabetes, where the incidence of diabetes is 14.7 per cent of the adult population, expected to rise to a quarter in the Gulf by 2030.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
