Matthew Holmes announced himself to the rest of the WorldTour by winning stage six of the Tour Down Under, with some even calling for Willunga Hill to be renamed Wiganlunga after the Brit's exploits in Australia.

Richie Porte will no doubt be disappointed at having lost his streak of wins up the climb, dating back to 2014, but will be satisfied with a second overall title at his home stage race.

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.
