Is this Ineos's squad for the Tour de France?

You try picking just eight riders from the British squad's illustrious roster

If Ineos select their Tour de France squad, and it isn't preceded by months of rumour and "the road will decide" quotes, will they even be on the start line for the French Grand Tour?

Since Egan Bernal became the first Colombian Tour winner last summer, many have wondered just how Ineos would manage to balance having the last three winners of the Tour de France in the same team.

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.
