The first British Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins has backed Chris Froome to make a full comeback from his horror crash and claim a record-equalling fifth Tour title.

After crashing during the 2019 Critérium du Dauphiné, the Ineos rider is back on his bike just 10 weeks later, albeit only on the track, but says his goal is to fully recover in time for the 2020 Tour.

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.
