For the past couple of months, Primož Roglič, Lora Klinc and their son, Lev, have been holed up in Tignes. They’ve become accustomed to being left to their own devices after this past year.

This particular period of isolation has fewer ramifications for the wider world, as the Roglič’s have squirrelled themselves away so dad can focus on how he can move from second place to first on the final podium of the Tour de France.

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.
