What's your favourite early season race? Is it the traditional season opener Omloop het Niewsblad? Strade Bianche is hugely popular. Or do you get excited by the first monument, Milan-San Remo and its helter skelter descent off the Poggio?

They’re all great opportunities to see who’s on form and watch some brilliant racing. Will Tadej Pogačar repeat his stellar showing of last season? Will Mark Cavendish ride the Tour? Will he beat Eddy Merckx’s Tour stage win tally this year? Can Philippe Gilbert win Milan-San Remo in his final season to capture his missing fifth monument?

Paul started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2015, covering cycling tech, new bikes and product testing. Since then, he’s reviewed hundreds of bikes and thousands of other pieces of cycling equipment for the magazine and the Cycling Weekly website.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
