matt white

Former Garmin-Cervelo directeur sportif Matt White has confirmed that he was dismissed from the squad due to referring Garmin rider Trent Lowe to Spanish doctor Luis Garcia del Moral in 2009.

Garmin team rules stipulate that none of the team's riders can be referred to an external doctor without approval by the team's own medical staff. As the news emerged that White had contravened this rule, team boss Jonathan Vaughters had no option other than to terminate White's employment with the squad.

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.
