Geraint Thomas and Sergio Henao will lead Team Sky's two-pronged attack on stage three of the Tour Down Under tomorrow, as the 2016 race hits its first significant climb: Corkscrew Road.

Welshman Thomas had attempted to gain valuable bonus seconds during stage two on Tuesday by contesting an intermediate sprint, but was thwarted by stage one winner Caleb Ewan, who was looking out for the interests of Orica-GreenEdge team-mate and GC hope Simon Gerrans.

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.
