Helen Wyman (Kona) took her first victory of the 2015/16 cyclo-cross season in the Bpost Bank Trofee Flandriencross event in Belgium on Sunday.

British national champion Wyman prevailed in the extremely muddy conditions to beat Belgian World Cup leader Sanne Cant (Enertherm-BKCP), who suffered a badly-timed mechanical near the race's finale.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
