Glad he's OK, could of been more serious

I know this is about Wiggins but any news on Sutton - didnt like what I read TBH
Problem is - when you flip the bird to a journalist, it looks more like you are doing it towards his audience... Anyway, this just goes along the lines of what he's shown in the past, no big surprise.

This is where you hope the audience show a bit of intelligence....

Then again they do read the papers in the first place

I don't want Wiggins, or anyone, pandering to an audience who want cameras pointed into cars. And "journalist" is a stretch.

What I do NOT like is Wiggins getting abuse from fellow cyclists in this instance: totally pathetic, some posters should be ashamed of themselves

As a euro living in Sydney, I have to say Aussie drivers suck the most when it comes to respect and awareness of cyclists

At a time when people are wishing him well and hoping he recovers he gives us one more reason to dislike him, real classy move there Wiggo .

Sure media can be annoying and sometimes they deserve to be told to back off. But when your in the public eye like Wiggins is these kind of things just make you look bad and make people dislike you. Instead of resorting to childish things like flipping them off he should politely tell them to give him some space.

Nibali, Purito, Pozzovivo, Kreuziger, Hesjedal, Scarponi, Basso, Quintana (if he competes), Sanchez (if he competes).

The last thing Wiggins does is light up a race.

I agree absolutely classless. Just lost some respect for him.
