Orica-GreenEdge in hunt for stage wins at Tour de France

GreenEdge line up, Ghent-Wevelgem 2012

Australian outfit Orica-GreenEdge is aiming for wins in the flat and hilly stages rather than the yellow jersey at this year's Tour de France with its nine-man roster, announced on Sunday.

Matt Goss spearheads the team's assault on flat stages in its debut Tour, which starts on Saturday, June 30, in Liege, Belgium. Goss will contest the bunch sprints against former HTC-Highroad team-mate Mark Cavendish, for whom Goss was a key lead-out man in last year's race.

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.
