Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) has indicated he wants to ride both the Tour de France and Tokyo Olympics in 2020, where he will be making up for lost time after sitting out for the majority of the 2019 season.

The Dutchman finished runner-up behind Geraint Thomas (Ineos) at the 2018 Tour and picked up silver in the Rio Olympic time trial in 2016, and will be looking to go one better when he joins his new team, Jumbo-Visma.

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.
