One of Britain's greatest road and track racing cyclists
Winner of the Tour de France (2012) and Olympic Gold Time-Trials (2012)
BBC's "Sports Personality of the Year" (2012)
As five time Olympic Gold medal winner, with eight medals in total – and the UK’s first winner of the iconic Tour de France, Sir Bradley Wiggins CBE is an outstanding star in British sport and world cycling today. He is one of the few cyclists to gain significant elite level success in both professional track and road cycling.
At the 2014 UCI Road World Championships, he was crowned as the time trial world champion. Bradley once again made it into the history books when he broke the prestigious hour record, setting a new distance of 54.526kms in 2015 in front of a sell-out crowd in London. Later that year he returned to compete as part of the Great Britain Cycling Team pursuit squad, winning gold at the UEC European Track Championships in Switzerland.
With his exceptional track records, Bradley was awarded the BBC’s “Sports Personality of the Year” in 2012 and was named on the New Years Honours list in 2013, in which he was awarded a Knighthood for his service to cycling.
He retired from professional cycling inDecember 2016 to concentrate his time on supporting and running the cycling team, Team Wiggins, with plans to make a female team as well as the current men’s.
Bradley is an accomplished author who has written two books during his career. “In Pursuit of Glory” (2009) follows his success as a track cyclist at the Beijing Olympics where he won two gold medals. His second book, “My Time” (2013), tells the story of his remarkable journey to win the world’s toughest race, and was a Sunday Times best-seller. He has also written a book “My Hour” (2015) documenting the history, his training and attempt at the hour cycling record.
