Matej Mohorič has said he's "super lucky" to have walked away from his alarming crash at the Giro d'Italia with only minor injuries.

On a descent during stage nine, the Slovenian flipped over his handlebars whilst navigating a corner in what was a worrying-looking crash. His back wheel had lost grip and then re-gripped on the tarmac, then sent careering into the curb, his wrecked bike left lying on the floor and the forks looking like they'd snapped.

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.
