Team Sky rider Jonathan Tiernan-Locke has received notification from cycle sport's governing body, the Union Cycliste International (UCI), that potential anomalies have been found in his anti-doping biological passport.

Tiernan-Locke was due to ride for Great Britain in the 2013 World Championships men's road race but withdrew at the last minute citing lack of form. It now appears that the 28 year old has withdrawn himself from racing whilst attempting to clarify the situation with the UCI.

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.
