Sagan finished the Eneco Tour (September 19-25) with two stage victories and third place overall in the Belgian/Dutch race, meaning that he regained the lead in the WorldTour ranking from Vuelta a España winner Nairo Quintana (Movistar).

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.
