Team Sky has been invited to the 2010 Vuelta a Espana, having secured one of the Spanish Grand Tour's wildcard places - but RadioShack has not been handed a place.

The British-based Sky squad was one of six teams handed a wildcard place at the Vuelta (August 28-September 19), joining Cervelo, Garmin-Transitions, Andalucia-Cajasur, Xacobeo Galicia and Katusha. Sixteen teams had already been assured of a place according to an agreement made two years ago between the Vuelta organisers and the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), bringing the total to 22 squads.

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.
