Gerdemann takes lead in Luxembourg

Linus Gerdemann wins, Tour of Luxembourg 2011, stage 2

Linus Gerdemann gave his Leopard-Trek squad another home win, soloing to take stage two in the Tour of Luxembourg on Friday and earning the overall lead in the process.

Gerdemann won the stage having ridden an aggressive race throughout. The German attacked fellow escapees Anthony Charteau (Europcar) and Jurgen Van Goolen (Veranda's Willems-Accent) on the second of three finishing circuits and the rest of the field didn't see him again.

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.
