Caleb Ewan says sprinters never want to put each other "in harm's way" after he squeezed through gaps to take the stage three victory at the 2020 Tour de France.

The Australian floated back on the run-in after finding himself too far forward too early, then fighting his way back up through traffic to pip Sam Bennett (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) on the line.

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.
