Saxo Bank step up commitment to Bjarne's Riis's team for 2014

Saxo-Tinkoff chases, Vuelta a Espana 2013, stage 19

Online investment and trading specialist Saxo Bank has 'stepped up' its commitment to Bjarne Riis's cycling team for 2014, filling the financial void left by the departing Tinkoff Bank, which will not renew its sponsorship at the end of the season.

Saxo Bank has agreed to fund the Danish WorldTour-level squad throughout the 2014 season to allow Riis time to find a secondary sponsor. It will be the sixth year that the financial company has been involved with the team.

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.
