Get ready to be inspired by Sir Bradley Wiggins, Britain’s most decorated Olympian and the first British cyclist to conquer the Tour De France. With an impressive track record of winning World and Olympic championships on both the track and the road, Bradley is a true authority on British Cycling. Not only has he dominated the Grand Tours of cycling and held the hour record, but he has also accumulated six world titles and three Olympic gold medals on the track.
But Bradley’s success doesn’t stop there. After securing a podium place at the 2009 Tour de France, he made history by becoming the first British cyclist to win the event in 2012. And let’s not forget his incredible Olympic win at the 2012 London Olympics, which solidified his position as a household name. His charisma in front of the cameras and press, combined with his impressive sports accolades, even earned him the prestigious 2012 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.
Bradley’s cycling career continued to soar with victories at the 2013 Tour of Britain and the 2014 World Time Trial Championships. And in 2016, he made history once again by winning his 5th gold medal at the Rio Olympics, making him Britain’s most decorated Olympian ever with a total of eight Olympic medals.
Since his retirement in 2016, Bradley has been pursuing his other passions and making waves in the world of TV and radio. He has shared his love of music and mod culture in a BBC Radio 6 Music special and explored the same topic in the Sky Arts Documentary Bradley Wiggins on Mods.
But don’t think that Bradley has left his cycling expertise behind. He is still considered one of the leading experts on the sport and has provided valuable content to Eurosport. From his podcast ‘The Bradley Wiggins Show with Adam Green and special guests’ to his role as an analyst in Eurosport’s Grand Tour coverage, Bradley continues to share his insights and knowledge with cycling enthusiasts. He has even followed the Tour De France Peloton on the back of a motorbike, providing in-the-moment excitement and analysis.
And if that’s not enough, Sir Bradley Wiggins has also written several books about his cycling career and is currently an ambassador for the charity MIND. With his wealth of experience and passion for mental health, Bradley is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others.
