It's every professional cyclists worst nightmare, made even worse by the fact that these days the moment is captured on video and can be preserved for ever more.

Lucy Kennedy (Mitchelton-Scott) put in a great attack in the final of the third stage of the Giro Rosa 2019, speeding away up the final incline towards the finish line on the flat section of road across the cobbles.

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.
