Winter is grim, isn't it? Cold, rainy, dark before you leave work. If you're a professional cyclist it's not so bad, though. Whisked away for some warm weather training in sunnier climes, easy kilometres to get you back into the swing of things after your end-of-season holiday. Possibly the only time of year to be jealous of the pros, really.

Although, judging by Geraint Thomas' face below, it's not all that fun at all.

1. "Okay peloton, we've got to get that price back up above 90 so I want to see you pedalling go go go!"

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.
