Britain's two Olympic road cycling medallists, Emma Pooley and Nicole Cooke, have continued their run of results with a stage win apiece in the Tour Cycliste Féminin International Ardèche in France.

Cooke won the opening stage of the race on Tuesday, and Pooley won the fourth stage yesterday (Thursday) proving that both riders will be ranked as firm favourites for the forthcoming World Championships in Varese, Italy (September 23-28).

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

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, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
