The fiber $W_{n}$ of the double suspension $S^{2n-1}\rightarrow\Omega^{2} S^{2n+1}$ is known to have a classifying space $BW_{n}$. An important conjecture linking the $EHP$ sequence to the homotopy theory of Moore spaces is that $BW_{n}\simeq\Omega T^{2np+1}(p)$, where $T^{2np+1}(p)$ is Anick's space. This is known if $n=1$. We prove the $n=p$ case and establish some related properties.
