Egan Bernal took victory on stage seven of the Tour de Suisse as he looked to consolidate his lead ahead of tomorrow's time trial.

The Colombian attacked from the leading GC group with less than 5km to go, aware that world time trial champion Rohan Dennis (Bahrain-Merida) sits 12 seconds down, poised to capitalise in tomorrow's flat race against the clock.

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.
