Sir Bradley Wiggins, Jonathan Dibben, Steven Burke and Owain Doull of Great Britain set the fastest qualifying time for the men's team pursuit on the opening day of the 2016 UCI Track World Championships in London.

At times, Wiggins's team-mates appeared to be struggling to keep pace with the multiple Olympic medallist and 2012 Tour de France champion, but they held it together to clock 3-55.664 and beat the time set by Australia by a narrow margin.

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.
