The current yellow jersey of the 2020 Tour de France, Primož Roglič says there is nothing to hide and we can trust his performances to be credible, after another successful defence of his race lead on stage 15.

Heading into the second and final rest day, the Jumbo-Visma rider's overall lead was shortened slightly to 40 seconds over Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), who beat him in the sprint for the line, accumulating four more bonus seconds than his compatriot.

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.
