British rider Josh Edmondson has taken his first victory for his new An Post-Chain Reaction team, claiming the third stage of the Tour d'Azerbaidjan on Friday.

Edmondson attacked in the finale of the stage to take a solo win, but only just - Slovenian Marco Kump (Adria Mobil) was hot on his heels, finishing in second place just one second behind the 22 year old from Leeds. Edmondson expressed his surprise at the stage win, saying via Twitter: "Wasn't expecting that to work! Normally my daft attacks don't work out. Bloody glad it did though!"

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.
