I know bugger all about the sport cycling , but what I do know is that I used to cycle everywhere at one time and Bradley Wiggins is a world record holder, an Olympic champion and a former Tour de France winner.

Which means he was cycling against a lot of other people to win them races and it takes a lot of graft to do it.

Some folk in this country always try to find a downer on our triumphant sportsmen/women. He's just broken a world record for goodness sake.

At least we agree on one thing.

Bump!

Just thought I would let people know that Wiggins record has now been broken by a Belgium cyclist called Victor Camenaerts.

He sort of cheated a little bit in that he broke the record at altitude, which is easier than at sea level because the atmosphere is that much thinner.

There's not actually been too many attempts on the record since Wiggins set it, so it has stood longer than I predicted at the time of this thread.

For the record since Wiggins won the Tour de France and Olympic gold in 2012 and set the record in 2015 he's won nothing of note and has since retired from cycling.

Chris Froome (who was the better cyclist than Wiggins in 2012 - but was prohibited to challenge him being on the same team) has since won the Tour four times as well as the Tours of Italy and Spain.

Seems I did know a little bit about cycling after all!

I'm still gutted that my grandad's Land's End to John O'Groats tandem record was broken. Although they did it the other way round and not because they thought it would be all downhill.
