Bradley Wiggins tested his legs on the final stage of the Giro del Trentino on Friday, getting into the thick of the action on the stage's final long climb as he prepares to take on the Tour of California (May 11-18).

That Wiggins is in good shape is beyond doubt - a ninth place at Paris-Roubaix in an elite group containing Fabian Cancellara and Tom Boonen proved as much. Another decent show was put on in Trentino's opening team time trial, where Sky's six-man line-up placed third among teams with a full complement of eight riders. Wiggins then worked for team-mates Kanstantsin Siutsou and Philip Deignan in the following two hilly stages.

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.
