While Movistar’s second instalment of the ‘The Least Expected Day’ lacked the dramatics of three of their best riders jumping ship, it more than made up for that with a warts and all showcase of what life is really like inside a WorldTour team.

Especially to the non-Spanish-speaking world, it’s often hard to get a real feel for riders and teams who if ever interviewed in English are kept to a few words before and after a race.

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.
