Great Britain's team pursuiters once again showed they are the best in the world with a dominant performance in both the men's and women's disciplines during the Manchester round of the 2017/18 UCI Track World Cup over November 10-12.

Having qualified fastest and progressed through the first round, GB's men's pursuit line up of Ed Clancy, Steven Burke, Ollie Wood and Kian Emadi swept aside Denmark in the gold medal final with apparent ease, posting a blistering time of 3-55.847 to Denmark's 4-01.535.

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.
