The event will again be held as a fund-raiser for the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign. The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, Surrey - a centre for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer - has close connections to event organisers Guy and William Pearson as it was the hospital treated their late father's illness.

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.
