Tao Geoghegan Hart's hopes for a good performance during the elite men's individual time trial at the 2017 UCI Road World Championships were scuppered by an early crash and breathing problems.

The 22-year-old from London had been a relatively late call up for the event in Bergen, Norway, after the withdrawal of Steve Cummings. Any chances of a good time were spoiled when he crashed, scuffing up his right-hand side and cutting his knee. He remounted and finished the race.

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.
