Garmin-Chipotle, the US-based cycling team owned and managed by Jonathan Vaughters, has been granted a four-year ProTour license by the sports governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).

Former pro cyclist Vaughters' squad has so far been allocated Professional Continential status, but has ridden in many of the UCI's ProTour events - and other high profile races such as the Tour de France - by relying on wildcard entries.

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.
