“2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards. Kids from Kilburn don’t win Olympic golds and the Tour de France! They do now.” That was Sir Bradley Wiggins’ commentary on his cycling retirement, which he announced on 28th December 2016, although he didn’t confirm that he rode his last professional race. Britain’s first 2012 Tour de France winner and five-time Olympic champion said he had fulfilled a “childhood aspiration” of making a career out of a beloved sport. Below you’ll find some of the most memorable snapshots from his life both on and off saddle.
As was stated above, he might appear elsewhere in the vast world of cycling, but his retirement is well-deserved and his career brought us many moments of suspense and excitement.
