Hannah Barnes has been reinstated as winner of last weekend's IG London Nocturne Elite Women's Criterium after a review by the British Cycling Race Commissaires panel.

Laura Trott (Wiggle-Honda) was announced as the race's winner on the night, but subsequently pictures emerged of Barnes crossing the line ahead of Trott. On Thursday, organiser of the event, Face Partnership, put out a statement saying that Barnes had been relegated to second behind Trott after she "contested the sprint dangerously" by raising her arms in celebration.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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.
