Team GB say they can be happy with their performance in the mixed relay TT, a solid fifth place that didn't quite reach the heights of their bronze in Harrogate two years ago, but against much tougher opposition they can "hold our heads high", says Anna Henderson.

"Being competitive you always want to be in the medals don't you?" she asks Cycling Weekly rhetorically. "But I think with the quality of the field we can generally be proud of what we did. You look at our results in the TT individually, I think we even stepped up from that.

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.
