Arnaud Démare won the final stage five bunch sprint at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana 2021 to cap off a week that saw Groupama-FDJ win four out of the five stages, as well as the general classification.

The French national champion outclassed the rest of the sprinting field, taking both of the bunch finishes on offer at the race, on this occasion beating Jon Aberasturi (Caja-Rural Seguros RGA) into second and Timothy Dupont (Bingoal Pauwels Suaces WB) took third.

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.
