California is known for its laid-back, easy-going lifestyle, but for the cyclists of Los Angeles who have developed a penchant for tackling KOM leaderboards on Strava they'll have to be a bit less relaxed if they want to break into the top 10s on climbs around Los Angeles.

That's because Chris Froome has spent his winter on the west coast, enjoying the warm weather and preparing for his first season at Israel Start-Up Nation, where he'll be looking to return to the Tour de France and potentially claim a record-equalling fifth yellow jersey.

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.
