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.
Dude, that is the dream but you shoud be prepared to be disappointed if you are a fan, i know i am..he almost made me go crazy at this year Giro.

Dull on the bike, but makes the press side considerable more interesting.

What a complete t!t Wiggins is. There was no need for him to give the one fingered salute at all.

I bet all these fan boys who are saying "Way to go Brad", "LOLZ Nice one Brad" etc are the same fools asking for Ashley Cole's head on plate when he swore on Twitter.

He is supposed to be someone to look upto, but really he is a complete d!ck.

Clearly it's fine to photograph him in the privacy of his car as he leaves hospital, but I don't know where to draw the line.

The one I got through the window of him in his hospital bed turned out nice.
Also stuck the camera through the window of his house, and got one of his kids welcoming him home; and then the long lens got him in the shower.

And he gives me the finger? What a scumbag.

How would you feel, returning from the hospital, high on painkillers, with an army of journalists around your car.

If you wished him well before, and now that he's shown the finger to some journalists you don't, that's not a very enduring fandom

Having watched the scrum on the news last night I can understand his gesture. They just wouldn't give him any peace.

Wiggins collision driver's shock
"The van driver who knocked Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins off his bike on Wednesday has told The Sun that she was "devastated" when she realised it was the world's most famous cyclist. He is recuperating at home."

http://www.itv.com/news/story/2012-1...ng-with-a-van/

I think the report meant "Britain's most famous cyclist."
