Chris Horner wins, Vuelta a Espana 2013, stage 10

Chris Horner (RadioShack-Leopard) took his second stage win of the 2013 Vuelta a Espana on Monday, winning the key mountain stage to Alto Hazallanas and putting himself back into the overall lead.

Horner attacked an elite group of favourites on the final five kilometres of the steep finishing climb to quickly distance his rivals. Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) put in a chase in the last two kilometres, but could only match the American's pace rather than catch him.

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.
