EF Pro Cycling have been fined 4,500 Swiss Francs, or £3,700, for wearing non-compliant clothing at the 2020 Giro d'Italia.

The team unveiled an eye-catching new kit at the team presentation before the start of the Italian Grand Tour, a result of a collaboration between Rapha and skate brand Palace so that EF's usual pink kit didn't clash with the maglia rosa, which has captured the dreams and nightmares of cycling fans around the world.

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.
