It must be a hard life being one of the most successful professional cyclists of the 21st century. Once you have counted up your seven Grand Tour titles and 46 career wins, you must have the same problems as the rest of us.

This is Chris Froome's situation, as the 37-year-old Israel-Premier Tech rider took to social media on Thursday afternoon to take action against his problems with GoPro. Now, far be it for me to suggest how Froome should tackle his problems with technology, but it does seem a little unfair for someone with 1.5 million followers on Twitter to complain so publicly. Maybe it was his last course of action, and we can only hope that the camera company were quick to get in touch with him.

Adam is Cycling Weekly’s news editor – his greatest love is road racing but as long as he is cycling on tarmac, he's happy. Before joining Cycling Weekly he spent two years writing for Procycling, where he interviewed riders and wrote about racing. He's usually out and about on the roads of Bristol and its surrounds. Before cycling took over his professional life, he covered ecclesiastical matters at the world’s largest Anglican newspaper and politics at Business Insider. Don't ask how that is related to cycling.
