Bradley Wiggins – if you don’t know that name you’ve been living under a rock, deep in a cave on some planet where wheels don’t exist. Bradley Wiggins – or Sir Bradley Wiggins as he is now – is probably Britain’s most famous cyclist and one of its most decorated Olympians. He’s won no fewer than seven medals across both Olympic track cycling and Olympic road cycling events during his illustrious career. Add to this his Tour De France win in 2012 and it’s clear to see that ‘Wiggo’, as he’s known, is a force to be reckoned with.
But while Bradley Wiggins could have feasibly chosen to compete in a variety of roles for Team GB, at Rio 2016 the British cycling champ is returning to his roots.
