The world's press and a smattering of the world's best professional cyclists will descend on the Palais des Congrès in Paris on Tuesday (October 17) to be officially wowed by details of the 2018 Tour de France route.

Each year, Tour organiser ASO keeps details of the whole route closely under wraps until its official announcement is made. That doesn't stop the rumours, speculation and informed guesswork from piecing together what may or may not be the route of cycling's biggest race.

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.
