What do Tom Dumoulin and I have in common? No, I've never won the Giro d'Italia or been world champion, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't have his ears pierced or a particular love for Jonathan Meades.

Our shared interest, apparently, is running. The Dutchman, who rode for Sunweb and then Jumbo-Visma, retired from cycling last year, but has seemingly kept in good shape. We both ran half marathons this year, but I finished my 13 miles in well over half an hour more than Dumoulin managed in Amsterdam last weekend.

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.
