Wiggo has his own sense of humour, some people get it and other don't. There's no arrogance in it at all. Most of the time he just likes to have a laugh especially at reporters who try and make sportsmen's lives more difficult. I find it brilliant how his dry sense of humour makes reporters squirm.

Not to burst the bubble, but to have a decent altitude training in March/April you don't have much choice but to go to the Canary Islands.

Anyway, an off season weight of 82 kgs, and a racing weight of 70 kgs, that's approaching Ulrich dimensions
It's the whole package (as your note suggests).

Boorish when he makes reporters struggle? It's a breathe a fresh air. A lot of sportsmen i follow on twitter have admitted they would love to have the balls to do what he does when they get annoyed with reporters and journalists

Well in that case you likely find it brilliant when watching a man take a dump while running at full speed.

Why do they award knighthoods for athletics? Isn't that similar to giving a nobel prize for sports?

It just seems kinda silly. The whole putting athletes on pedestals thing.

Best of luck to Sir BMW at the Laureus Awards
Sunday night in Rio. If he wins, which may be a
stretch, I'm sure he'll have a great joke (that
may offend the haters, and others with no
sense of humour).
