Ineos Grenadiers boss Dave Brailsford has said his health issues could force him to step down from the top job at the British team.

The 57-year-old has been treated for both cancer and heart issues in the past two years, the latter occurring at the time of the Richard Freeman hearing earlier this year, where the former Team Sky and British Cycling doctor was struck off after ordering banned testosterone to British Cycling HQ.

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.
