Chris Froome has confirmed that the 2015 Tour de France will be his main priority for the season, and will kick off his 2015 campaign at the Ruta del Sol in February.

Froome had previously said that he may target the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana in 2015, saying that the Giro represented a 'big opportunity', but it now appears that the Tour is once again at the very top of his agenda.

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.
