With the one-day hitters opening their accounts a fortnight ago at Opening Weekend, Paris-Nice offers the equivalent opportunity for the Grand Tour men when it starts this Sunday (3 March). 

Most notably, Tour de France hopefuls Remco Evenepoel Soudal Quick-Step) and Primož Roglič (Bora-Hansgrohe) will butt heads for the first time. How much can be read into whoever emerges on top from this particular skirmish is limited this far out from July.

After cutting his teeth on local and national newspapers, James began at Cycling Weekly as a sub-editor in 2000 when the current office was literally all fields. 

Eventually becoming chief sub-editor, in 2016 he switched to the job of full-time writer, and covers news, racing and features.

A lifelong cyclist and cycling fan, James's racing days (and most of his fitness) are now behind him. But he still rides regularly, both on the road and on the gravelly stuff.
