How many more tears are we going to see this Tour de France?

Sure, the July heat has only just started to hit the French Grand Tour, the overcast weather in Brittany not enough to dampen the return of crowds to the roadside, so the amount of facial precipitation from the 2021 stage winners has been the only wash-out so far.

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.
