Armitstead narrowly misses first World Cup win

Lizzie Armitstead

Britain's Lizzie Armitstead (Garmin-Cervelo) narrowly missed out on taking her first road World Cup win on Sunday (May 15), coming home in second place behind Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC-Highroad) in the Tour of Chongming Island World Cup round in China.

Teutenberg had won the confusingly similarly-named Tour of Chongming Island UCI 2.1-ranked stage race on Friday, but only after Armitstead had won the sprint on the first of the race's three stages - the 22-year-old's first win of the year.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
