Oscar Pereiro Tour jersey ceremony

In a ceremony at the Higher Council of Sports in Madrid yesterday afternoon, Oscar Pereiro finally got to wear the yellow winner's jersey of the 2006 Tour de France.

Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France, presented Pereiro with the jersey in front of dignitaries from the sporting bodies of Spain and France. Pereiro received the jersey after 2006 winner Floyd Landis tested positive for testosterone during the 2006 event, which resulted in a protracted legal wrangle.

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.
