While Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič dispensed with their GC rivals on stage 13 to make it a one-two for Slovenia at the top of the Tour de France general classification, Pogačar has made it clear he will not settle for second place.

"It was a tough battle but in those last 2km I don't think we were friends," Pogačar said of the race after the pair drifted away from their rivals in the final, testing each other to the line. "We just wanted to get to the top, we will definitely see more attacking and more rivalry in the next week."

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.
