Stannard attacks all the way in Tour of Poland stage six

Ian Stannard, Tour of Poland 2012

British road race champion Ian Stannard (Sky) gave it everything during stage six of the Tour of Poland on Sunday, spending all day in an escape group, getting caught and then attacking again in the race's dying kilometres.

Stannard's Sky team-mate Sergio Henao put in a late bid for the stage win and yellow jersey after Stannard was caught for the second time, but the Colombian himself was caught and passed just metres from the line by Moreno Moser (Liquigas-Cannondale). With his second stage win of the race, Moser put himself in the overall lead thanks to the winner's time bonuses.

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.
