Bradley Wiggins
Icons

Sir Bradley Wiggins is one of the most significant figures in British cycling. In 2012, he became a household name overnight, winning the Tour De France followed by Olympic Gold on the streets of London. An aficionado of the sport, Wiggins joins us to talk about his own cycling heroes and his new book, Icons, which showcases his collection of cycling memorabilia; each piece reflects an icon, a race or a moment that influenced him on a personal and professional level. He explores the lives and achievements of 21 of the sport’s key figures and sheds new light on what professional cycling demands of its top competitors. A rare opportunity to hear about this remarkable sport from a man uniquely placed to reflect on its history and its unforgettable titans.
