Clancy joins sprinters for Glasgow World Cup

Ed Clancy, London 2012 Olympic Games, track day four

Great Britain's Ed Clancy makes the switch from endurance to sprint disciplines at the Glasgow round of the UCI Track World Cup over November 16-18.

Clancy scored gold in the team pursuit and bronze in the omnium at the London 2012 Olympic Games in August. During the omnium, he once again showed his sprint credentials by winning the kilometre time trial round of the event with a time of 1:00.981, which was just two tenths of a second short of Sir Chris Hoy's 2004 Olympic record.

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.
