It was two very different tales for the Yates brothers in the Tour of Turkey on Tuesday, with Adam placing second on the tough mountain stage three behind Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) whilst Simon crashed out with a suspected broken collarbone.

Both of the 21-year-old British brothers are riding their first year as professionals with Orica-GreenEdge, and the team will be justifiably pleased with Adam's performance on the steep final climb to the line in Elmali.

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.
