Dani Martínez says the Tour de France is one of his objectives but has promised to keep his feet on the ground after taking the biggest win of his career so far, the overall victory at the Critérium du Dauphiné.

After the abandon of Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) before the final stage five, Martínez was fourth on GC and 12 seconds behind Pinot.

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.
