Laura Trott (Wiggle-Honda) is smoothly making the transition from Olympic gold-medal winning performances on the track to success on the road, after taking the lead in the best young rider classification in the Energiewacht Tour.

Riders were stopped on four occasions during the stage due to several factors, including being sent off course, closed railways crossings and vehicles making their way onto the roads.

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.
