Primož Roglič stormed to the overall victory at the Tour of the Basque Country on the final stage six, surging ahead alongside Hugh Carthy (EF - Nippo) and David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), before the Brit was dropped up the final climb and the Frenchman handed the stage win for the help given to the Slovenian.

Race leader Brandon McNulty had been dropped over the hard and fast racing of the final day, Tadej Pogačar initially trying to help the American back into the front group before then aiming to get the chase group back across to the front trio but to no avail.

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.
