Marianne Vos is one of the most talented and decorated cyclists of all time. On the road, she's been world champion three times, won 28 stages of the women's Giro d'Italia, the overall of the same race three times, the Olympics road race, La Course twice and a host of Spring Classics, too.

In cyclo-cross, she's worn the rainbow stripes seven times and she's even won gold on the track. For this reason, she was the marquee signing and will lead Jumbo-Visma's new women's squad, joining the team from CCC-Liv.

Josh has been with us since the summer of 2019 and throughout that time he's covered everything from buyer's guides and deals to the latest tech news and reviews. On the bike, Josh has been riding and racing for over 15 years.

He started out racing cross country in his teens back when 26-inch wheels and triple chainsets were still mainstream, but he found favour in road racing in his early 20s, racing at a local and national level for Somerset-based Team Tor 2000. 

These days he rides indoors for convenience and fitness, and outdoors for fun on road, gravel, 'cross and cross-country bikes, the latter usually with his two dogs in tow.
