Tour of Britain back in Surrey for 2013

Reigate crowds, Tour of Britain 2012, stage eight

Surrey County Council has confirmed that the county will host a stage of the 2013 Tour of Britain on the back of the 'huge success' of the race visiting the area last week.

SCC estimate that 200,000 spectators turned out to watch Sunday's final stage in the county from Reigate to Guildford to watch Mark Cavendish (Sky) take the stage win and Jonathan Tiernan-Locke (Endura) clinch the race overall.

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.
