There are just 11 days until the Tour de France. That might excite you, it might frighten you, but it also means we are just around the corner from the biggest social media blitz of the year, as teams try to squeeze every drop of content out from the race. It's the highest profile race of the year in every sense.

Think of now as the before times, the phoney war, when everything was reasonably peaceful and you could go on Twitter without seeing a rider you hadn't heard of from Arkéa Samsic doing a dance.

News editor

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.
