Bradley Wiggins says Mark Cavendish deserves a much better send-off than crying after Ghent-Wevelgem and has urged Ineos boss Dave Brailsford to sign him for next year.

"Mark’s like my little brother, I love him. It’s not nice watching him cry on the telly like that," Wiggins said in the latest episode of his podcast, The Bradley Wiggins Show.

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.
