Cycling Weekly news logo

Cycle sport's governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) issues a press statement on Thursday questioning the reasons behind the delay in receiving paperwork from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) relating to Lance Armstrong's doping case.

The UCI release criticises USADA's delay in sending through the case file, which it hopes to review in the light of USADA's decision to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour de France wins and ban him for life on the basis that he broke several anti-doping rules during his professional career.

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.
