Doesn't suit his image.
He's a class, confident act these days: see him playing guitar at SPOTY after show party?

Style and class and personality in shovelfuls: I think that confidence will show in his performances next year.

Point of the honours system, whether you like it or not, is to reward those that contribute to society.

Now what have Wiggins et al contributed this year?? a huge kick in the morale of the general populus of this country and going back 4 years to Chris Hoys knighthood the net effect of those honours or rewards was to help motivate another 1,000,000 new people onto the roads and forests on bikes.

So by winning what he did this year Wiggo has contibuted massively to the whole country, any reward is deserved.

Wouldn't it be delicious if, at the next after-party, Sir BMW
plays and sings his version of the Jam's 'Burning Sky."
I would love to see how those that inhabit the Clinic would
analyse the lyrics.

Wiggo's self esteem seems to be back.
Can Froome play guitar too?
Can't wait for all Sky drama next year.

BMW is exactly the personality we need to rescue the
credibility of professional road cycling.

He looks as comfortable with on rhythm guitar as he does on a bike. Years of practice.

Now Brad, about those races next year...

Have we had "Cycling: the New Rock n Roll" headlines in lad mags yet?
