Team Sky announced its line-up for the 2014 Tour de France on Friday morning, and 2012 winner Sir Bradley Wiggins was not one of the names on the list.

There's no doubt that Wiggins is Britain's most recognisable road rider. Arguably, he's also the nation's most popular one. On top of all his other results on the track and road, his gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics time trial elevated him to household-name status.

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.
