Remco Evenepoel banged away at his bars in fury as Primoz Roglič outgunned him in Monday's long, uphill sprint in the first day of Spain's Volta a Catalunya.

That's four wins out of eight days of racing this season for the Jumbo-Visma rider already, not to mention the GC, mountains and points jersey classifications at Tirreno-Adriatico on top of that.

After cutting his teeth on local and national newspapers, James began at Cycling Weekly as a sub-editor in 2000 when the current office was literally all fields. 

Eventually becoming chief sub-editor, in 2016 he switched to the job of full-time writer, and covers news, racing and features.

A lifelong cyclist and cycling fan, James's racing days (and most of his fitness) are now behind him. But he still rides regularly, both on the road and on the gravelly stuff.
