Without doubt one the greatest cyclists we have had coming out of this country...a man who tells it straight and admits he does not want to be a media trained athelete.... to quote him after yesterdays Gold medal winning time trail event

After the medal ceremony, which saw Wiggins receive the fourth Olympic gold of his remarkable career and Froome a richly deserved bronze, the time trial champion got back on his bike to thank "the real fans".

"I wanted to see my wife, but also all the people who had stood by the roadside and shouted through the whole thing," said Wiggins.

"Usually, the great thing about cycling is that anybody can watch it, it's very accessible. But here [at the start and finish] you have to be in the chosen few, it's a bit of a prawn-sandwich fest.

"We all know about Olympic ticketing, so it was nice to go back out and just show some appreciation for all that they did for that hour.

"It's a shame they, the real fans, couldn't see the ceremony, so it was nice to go out and roll up and down."


Top man Brad
