Biography

Bradley Wiggins established himself as one of the world’s finest track endurance riders by collecting six Olympic medals across three Games, including individual pursuit gold at Athens 2004 and individual pursuit gold and team pursuit gold at Beijing 2008. He also has six world track titles to his name but after Beijing, and after the removal of the individual pursuit from the Olympic schedule,

he switched his attentions to the road and in 2009 he finished fourth in the Tour de France – matching Robert Millar’s best ever finish in the race by a Brit.

In 2009 he was awarded a CBE and in 2010 he joined Team Sky and while the Tour de France didn’t go to plan that year, he looked in excellent shape in 2011 before he broke his collarbone early on in the race. He recovered to finish third in the Vuelta a Espana later that year.

At the 2011 World Championships in Copenhagen, Wiggins played an instrumental role in helping Mark Cavendish to road race gold, while he also won time trial silver and he will contest both events in London.

In 2012 he has won both the Paris-Nice and the Tour de Romandie and he successfully defended his Critérium du Dauphiné title, becoming the only cyclist in history to win all three races in the same season. He began the Tour de France among the favourites for victory.

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London Wiggins won gold in the individual time trial.
