Jan Ullrich website

German 1997 Tour de France winner and 2000 Olympic road race champion Jan Ullrich has made a return to cycling - as a cyclo-sportive rider.

Ullrich withdrew from the world of professional cycling after being implicated in the Operacion Puerto organised doping ring in Madrid, Spain. He was barred from taking part in the 2006 Tour de France, and subsequently retired from cycling - and largely from public life - in 2007.

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.
