While riders such as Geraint Thomas head to the Deutschland Tour to prepare for the upcoming World Championships in Yorkshire, other riders are preparing in less conventional ways.

If you had to guess which pro this would be, you'll be unsurprised to discover it's Peter Sagan, who took some time off the tarmac to enjoy himself on a mountain bike as he prepares to try and win a fourth Worlds title in Yorkshire in September.

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.
