Lachlan Morton (EF Education First) has won the GBDuro, a 2,000km unassisted endurance race from Land's End to John O'Groats, finishing in around 158 hours.

The format of the race involves four timed 'stages', with the clock only stopping when riders reach checkpoints, allowing them to sleep with the time stopped before starting the next leg.

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.
