David Millar and Simon Gerrans, Tour de France 2010 stage one

Team Sky's Simon Gerrans has been forced to withdraw from the 2010 Tour de France after breaking his arm in a crash during stage 8 on Sunday.

Gerrans fell in the first 10km of racing in yesterday's mountains stage to Avoriaz. He re-mounted and completed the stage in the sprinters group, 32 minutes and 34 seconds behind winner Andy Schleck (Saxo Bank), despite being in pain. X-rays later confirmed that the Australian had broken his arm.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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.
