Everyone knows Paris-Roubaix is one of the toughest races of the season, it's part of the hyperbole surrounding the Monument. With 29 cobbled sectors, the dust and the dirt, not to mention that to win you usually have to ride someone off your wheel on a flat parcours, it's an impressive victory for any rider's palmarès.

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.
