Skinner put copies of his medical records online on Monday evening in the wake of having his therapeutic use exemption (TUE) certificates published by hacking group Fancy Bears last week. Skinner wrote an accompanying column for the Scotsman to explain his medical records.

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.
