RadioShack manager Johan Bruyneel has had his appeal against the timing of a two-month suspension rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Bruyneel was handed a two-month ban in October by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) for his team's non-adherence to clothing regulations during the final stage of the 2010 Tour de France. RadioShack riders swapped their accredited grey and red team clothing for all-black kit on the Tour's final stage into Paris. The black kit was part of a publicity exercise for Lance Armstrong's cancer awareness foundation, LiveStrong.

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.
