News: Sir Brad Retires

Britain’s first Tour de France winner, in 2012, says he has fulfilled a “childhood aspiration” making a career out of the sport of cycling.

World and Olympic champion as well as a Tour de France winner, as well as being the most popular British cyclist ever, after some hestitation, Sir Bradley Wiggins announces his retirement from racing

On his team’s facebook page, he says “I have been lucky enough to live a dream and fulfil my childhood aspiration of making a living and a career out of the sport I fell in love with at the age of 12. I’ve met my idols and ridden with and alongside the best for 20 years.”

“I have worked with the world’s best coaches and managers who I will always be grateful to for their support. What will stick with me forever is the support and love from the public though thick and thin, all as a result of riding a pushbike for a living. 2012 blew my mind and was a gas.”

First world title in 2003 in Stuttgart, proud moment for me to interview and photograph Brad as part of the GB team there.

“Cycling has given me everything and I couldn’t have done it without the support of my wonderful wife Cath and our amazing kids. 2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards, “feet on the ground, head in the clouds” kids from Kilburn don’t win Olympic Golds and Tour de Frances’! They do now.”

Good luck to Sir Wiggo in his future endeavours … #cyclingicon
