Primož Roglič has revealed the tactical changes that will be made by Jumbo-Visma at the Tour de France this summer as he tries to rebound from last year's failure to take the yellow jersey to Paris.

Having being forced to miss the Dutch team's first training camp of the year after a coronavirus positive was detected in his immediate circle, the Slovenian appeared via video link from his home in Monaco in a pre-recorded interview session to talk about his plans for the year ahead.

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.
