Chris Froome says he battled through chest problems at the Tour de Romandie as he continues working towards regaining his previous form.

The four-time Tour de France champion was nearly part of the winning team with Michael Woods, the Israel Start-Up Nation rider having won stage four after Geraint Thomas' slip before shipping time to the Ineos rider in the final stage five time trial.

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.
