Tour de France runner-up Romain Bardet (Ag2r) says that he was 'amazed' at Bradley Wiggins's therapeutic use exemption certificates and says that there should be a review of corticosteroid use.

Bardet was speaking to French newspaper Le Monde, and said that he was amazed that Wiggins received corticosteroid injections prior to the Grand Tours. Details of Wiggins TUEs were leaked online by the Fancy Bears hacking group, who had illegally obtained the confidential records from the World Anti-Doping Agency's computer system.

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.
