Garmin-Sharp’s work to reward ratio took a battering on the fifth stage of the Tour of Britain. If they’d had a kitchen sink to hand, Garmin would have thrown it at the situation as they unsuccessfully tried to reel in the four escapees up the road.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
