Jumbo-Visma hope Primož Roglič's crash at the Critérium du Dauphiné won't disrupt his preparation for the Tour de France, while they wait to see how Steven Kruijswijk's condition develops over the coming days.

"He fell hard on his hip and we just want to see how he responds to that," team boss Richard Plugge said of Roglič's condition before the start of stage five, which his rider did not start. "It’s better safe than sorry. He was dizzy, but that was more the result of hitting the deck really hard and he was more like, ‘what happened?’ But after a couple of minutes he was mentally okay. There are no worries about a concussion."

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.
