You know the saying, made famous by the US Office's Andy Bernard: "I wish there was a way to know you were in the good old days before you actually left them." Well, there's a way to know when you're not in the good old days, and that's whenever you open up Twitter dot com.

That is, unless, you find inside Tadej Pogačar doing an improbable number of composed keepie-uppies with a football, or Thomas De Gendt noticing that what links the locations of this year's Paris-Nice route is human genitalia. Yes, you read the end of that sentence right.

1. Thomas De Gendt: 'Philippe, have a look at the tweet I just sent out'

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.
