Bradley Wiggins has said that he will target next year's Paris-Roubaix and possibly take on the Hour Record. The 2012 Tour de France winner and Olympic time trial champion also said that he will stay on at Team Sky through 2016, but will never again ride a Grand Tour to win it overall.

In an interview with Italian paper La Gazzetta dello Sport taken at the Pinarello Cycling Marathon in Italy, Wiggins said "I’m thinking about the Hour Record. Not this year but I’ll try next year. And I’ll do it on these bikes because I’m going to stay at Sky."

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.
