The off-season bites!

Nico Roche jumping out of a plane? More social media posts from teams than anyone knows what to do with? Halloween festivities? It must be the off-season. 

As winter takes hold and there is no racing to be seen, cycling media outlets will narrow their focus even further on the bright lights of Twitter dot com, hoping to pick up some crumbs to keep the power on until the new year.

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.
