Dylan Groenewegen is poised to make his Tour de France comeback with new employers BikeExchange Jayco, after receiving the green light from the squad to once again compete for stage wins in six months' time at the French Grand Tour.

The winner of four stages from 2017 to 2019, the 28-year-old missed out on selection in 2020 as Jumbo-Visma looked to utilise a three-pronged GC strategy with Primož Roglič, Tom Dumoulin and Steven Kruijswijk in search of the yellow jersey, with Groenewegen subsequently left at home.

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.
