Bradley Wiggins

Go Back


Bradley is a triple Olympic Gold medallist and the brightest star in British cycling. A professional track and road cyclist, he has won medals at the European, Commonwealth and World Championships, as well as taking home Gold in the Individual Pursuit at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and Gold in both the Individual and Team Pursuit at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and claimed an astonishing three GOLD medals at the World Championships in Manchester later that year.

His stunning transformation from track superstar to road star culminated in securing 4th place in the 2009 Tour de France, equalling Robert Millar’s best ever finish by a British rider 25 years earlier. Not content with this breakthrough performance, he went on to win the British National Time Trial Championships in September and followed this up with victory in the Tour Down Under that same year which proved to be his last race with Garmin Transitions.

Bradley Wiggins showed promise from an early age and, following in the footsteps of his professional cyclist father, he quickly developed a passion for the sport. He burst onto the international cycling scene with a Silver medal in the Team Pursuit at the Commonwealth Games in 1998; a massive achievement at the age of just 18 and a clear sign of much more to come from an exciting young athlete.

At the Athens Oylmpics, he was a key figure in Team GB putting in stunning performances which resulted in medals with the Team Pursuit and the Madison competition, and his crowning achievement, bringing back the Olympic Gold in the Individual Pursuit race. After returning from the games as a medal winning hero Wiggins’ year was completed with an OBE for services to sport in the New Year’s Honours List.

After these phenomenal successes Wiggins decided to turn his attention to road racing and in 2005 he competed for the French professional road cycling team Credit Agricole. In 2006 he switched to Team Cofidis and cycled in the most famous of all races, the Tour de France. For the 2008 season he made the switch to Team High Road.

At the Beijing Olympics later that year Bradley followed up his successes of Athensin by retaining his gold medal in the Individual Pursuit and adding the Team Pursuit title to his tally.

Eloquent and passionate, Bradley has firmly established himself as an outspoken opponent to the use of drugs within his sport and has spoken out on the subject to ensure that cycling is clean for generations to come.

He has featured as a columnist for The Observer newspaper and is an ambassador for Adidas. He initially launched his bestselling autobiography, ‘In Pursuit of Glory’ in October 2008 and rereleased it the following year with additional chapters to include his Tour de France exploits.
