Sir Bradley Wiggins, the first British winner of the Tour de France, the country’s most successful Olympian and now a world champion on the road following his time trial win in Ponferrada.

Wiggins was knighted after his incredible 2012 season when he won the Tour and went on to win Britain’s second gold medal at the London Olympics, a result that was credited as starting the home nations gold rush. At the end of 2012 he was crowned BBC’s Sport’s Personality of the Year.

Wiggins was controversially left out of Sky’s 2014 Tour de France squad In 2014 despite the race starting in the UK. Instead, after winning the Tour of California, Wiggins returned to the track and competed in the team pursuit at the Commonwealth Games as he looks to return to the track squad in Rio 2016 and what would be his fifth Olympic Games. After placing third in the Tour of Britain in September, Wiggins went on to crush the opposition in the World Championship title trial to take his first road world title.
