The Tour de France 2019 is well underway, with the first week flying by in a whirl of spectacular racing, crashes, undulating French countryside as well as all the oddities of the biggest race on the WorldTour calendar.

The French Grand Tour is one of the best races to bet on, with 21 chances to pick an 80/1 outsider to get themselves into a breakaway and hold off the peloton, the monetary reward only a welcome additional prize to the bragging rights of pulling off such a feat.

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.
