Bradley Wiggins wins 2012 Criterium du Dauphine

Bradley Wiggins (Sky) won the 2012 Critérium du Dauphiné overall on Sunday after his Sky team once again successfully nullified any last-ditch attacks on the Briton's overall grip in the race.

Wiggins' successful defence of his win from last year means that he now goes into the Tour de France at the end of June as the front runner for the yellow jersey. Sky's almost complete domination of the 2012 Dauphiné bodes well for Wiggins to become the first Briton to win the presitigious Grand Tour.

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.
