Q&A with Bardet: I'm ready to fight for victory at Liege–Bastogne–Liege

Romain Bardet impressed last year when he went on to claim sixth overall at the Tour de France.

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.
