Of course some of you will claim im making it up or whatever but didnt one of the journos also say that when he tried to talk to wiggins after a race wiggins rudely told him to go away?
And Vaughters is also on record on this forum saying wiggo is a jerk.
I spoke to some people at the Olympics who knew Wiggo when he was on the youth circuit, they all said he was an arrogant, ignorant sod then. Which is pretty much what you would expect from a kid who grew up on a council estate in Kilburn without a father figure around.
Then again he gets knocked off his bike on the way to a training hack with mates from the local mountain bike club, probably with pub stop afterwards, which is exactly what I do.
If you had to build your own perfect cycling superstar then you wouldn't start with Bradley Wiggins - if you are an ordinary bloke(girl) who wonders if you maight be able to make it in cycling without an education or decent background behind you - well Bradley Wiggins did.
say it ain't so, Joe please, say it ain't so, I'm sure they're telling us lies Joe, please tell us it ain't so
they told us our hero has played his trump card he doesn't know how to go on, we're clinging to his charm and determined smile, but the good old days are gone........ were gonna get burned, burned.....
