Caleb Ewan will lead Lotto-Soudal at the 2019 Giro d'Italia, in his first Grand Tour for the Belgian team.

The Australian will return to Italy after not competing in last year's race, but having taken the win on stage seven in 2017. His only other Grand Tour stage win came at the Vuelta a España on stage five in 2015.

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.
