Sir Bradley Wiggins, CBE

Cyclist

As a twelve-year-old, Bradley Wiggins told his art teacher that he would be an Olympic cycling champion. When he was compensated for a road accident as an early teen, Wiggins bought his first racing bike with the pay-out. In 2012, he became the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France and an Olympic time trial. As testament to his success, Wiggo was awarded British Sports Personality of the Year and the Velo d’Or, and was knighted in the 2013 New Year’s Honours list. Blessed with the best sideburns in sport, Sir Bradley has dramatically increased the profile of cycling with his track and Tour triumphs.
