Yes, that image above is of Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas standing over a child who appears to have fallen down.

Normally, we'd be concerned, but regardless as to whether not this incident is due to some foul play on Thomas' part, we'll give him a free pass, mostly due to the fact he does most of the heavy lifting with these tweets of the week articles.

Every seven days when the time comes to trawl through the miserable abyss of Twitter dot com, Geraint Thomas is always on hand with the goods. How's that for consistent.

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.
