Another pre-Grand Tour training camp in Tignes, the spot where their last one unrivalled, and again Primož Roglič arrives at the upcoming Vuelta a España with a point to prove as he looks to win a third consecutive title.

The Slovenian has acquired an Olympic gold medal in between his Tour de France disappointment and touching down in Burgos, forced out with injury before the start of stage nine which made its way up to his usual Alpine base and hasn't had to wait too long for the next three-week stage race to try put things right.

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.
