Gianluca Brambilla (Etixx-QuickStep) won the Trofeo Andratx on Friday, the second event in the 2016 Challenge Mallorca. The Italian took a well-timed solo victory ahead of a top 10 that featured a host of massive cycling stars.

Former road race world champion Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) finished in second spot to bring the peloton home just two seconds behind Brambilla in the 162.6-kilometre event. Kwiatkowski's former Etixx-QuickStep team-mate Zdenek Stybar was third.

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.
