As well as picking up a historic stage win at the summit finish of the Tourmalet, a feature that has now only occurred three times in the Tour de France's history, Thibaut Pinot picked up a second, albeit admittedly less important prize.

The Groupama-FDJ rider stuck with the front group of GC contenders before springing ahead with 250m to go to take the victory on stage 14, announcing that he's down but not out in the fight for the yellow jersey.

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.
