Ireland's Dan Martin (Garmin-Slipstream) held on to his fourth position overall in the Tour of the Mediterranean during today's lumpy 160km fifth stage from Brignoles to Marseille.

Tomorrow's final stage finishes atop Mont Faron, which could play into the hands of Martin, a very strong climber. If Martin's Garmin-Slipstream squad can again keep the attacks reined in, the Irish rider could strike at the last to put some time into his rivals.

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.
