Power data released by Jumbo-Visma shows how their rider Primož Roglič improved from his near-miss at the Giro d'Italia to come good in September and win his first ever Grand Tour, the Vuelta a España.

At the Giro, Roglič looked imperious in the early stages, especially the opening stage one time trial, which saw him take the maglia rosa. However, Roglič went on to falter in the third week, with Movistar's Richard Carapaz pouncing to take the overall victory.

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.
