Downing is 'fresh' from completing his first Grand Tour, having ridden through this year's tough Giro d'Italia last month. Far from making up the numbers, Downing got himself into a successful breakaway on stage 18, eventually finishing eighth on the stage.

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.
