Gee Atherton MTB World Cup

It may not have been the gold rush that many had been predicting, but the British riders certainly made their presence felt at the Fort William mountain bike World Cup this weekend (June 6-8).

Tracy Moseley came away with the gold medal in the women's downhill even on Sunday, with Rachel Atherton giving Britain another place on the podium with a fine third. France's Sabrina Jonnier was second. Also making the top ten was British rider Fionn Griffiths, who placed eighth.

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.
