Bradley Wiggins top podium, with Alexandre Vinokourov (third) and Cadel Evans (second), Criterium du Dauphine 2011, stage seven

Bradley Wiggins (Sky) has won the 2011 Critérium du Dauphiné overall, with Joaquin Rodriguez (Katusha) taking the final stage win atop La Toussuire on Sunday.

It's Wiggins' - and team Sky's - biggest road win to date and confirms that he is on great form ahead of the Tour de France in July. He is only the third British rider to win the Dauphiné, after Briain Robinson in 1961 and Robert Millar in 1990.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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.
