With just two weeks to go until the Giro d'Italia visits the Stelvio Pass, the Italian ski resort is still enduring heavy snowfall.

The Stelvio is used during stage 16 of the 2017 Giro on Tuesday, May 23, and is the highest point visited in the 2017 race at 2,758 metres. As such, it is named as this year's Cima Coppi, with extra mountain points on offer for the rider that crests it first.

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.
