Second place at Milan-San Remo in Italy on Saturday for Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) has elevated the road race World Champion to pole position in the UCI WorldTour ranking, deposing former leader Richie Porte (BMC Racing).

Few would dispute that Sagan has been a dominant force in top-level professional racing so far this season, and he now leads the WorldTour ranking by a 60 point margin over Milan-San Remo winner Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky). Slovakian star Sagan was overall winner of the 2016 WorldTour.

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.
