Martin cruised through the lumpy 36.7km test against the clock in 47 minutes and two seconds, 15 seconds ahead of second-placed Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) and 18 seconds quicker than third-placed Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing).

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.
