About the Author

Sir Bradley Wiggins is arguably Britain's most decorated athlete of all time. "Wiggo" grew up in Kilburn in London. He won the World Junior Pursuit title before going on to win seven Olympic medals—including four gold medals—spanning four games, and seven World Track Championship titles. In 2012, he became the first Briton to win the Tour de France, a feat that Sir Chris Hoy described as "the greatest sporting achievement” by a British athlete. He was awarded the OBE in the 2005 New Year's honors list and the CBE in 2009. He was knighted in the 2013 New Year's honors. He currently lives in northwest England with his wife, Cath, and their two children, Ben and Isabella.
