Primož Roglič lost more time on stage seven of the 2021 Tour de France, making his continued GC challenge an evermore unlikely prospect.

Last year's runner-up has been suffering since his stage three crash, saying before the start of stage seven that he was still in a lot of back pain, with his tailbone also still causing him discomfort after he landed hard on the tarmac earlier this week.

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.
