I took over at the helm of the Cycling Weekly tech team towards the end of December 2019, expecting a normal year of launches and Grand Tour races, with my own National series racing served up as a side plate.

The reality which unfolded was something very different: 12 months of Zoom call unveilings, experiments in Wifi optimisation (thanks Amazon Eero for keeping my marriage and sanity intact!) plus a lot more miles on home roads. Personally, my racing consisted of one pre-lockdown British Women's Cup race, from which the only memorabilia I collected were several stitches and a new scar to add to the elbow collection.
