Here at the tweets of the week sub-section of Cycling Weekly, we've grown numb to the more offbeat recesses of the Bizarro World that is cycling.

Remember Mikel Landa taking an axe to his turbo trainer at the start of lockdown? That was somewhat of a watershed moment as everyone, fans and pros alike, began to lose their grip on reality during the months spent mostly inside.

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.
