Bradley Wiggins: An Evening with

  • Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult
 

DOORS OPEN 7PM

Celebrating the release of his brand-new book Icons: My Inspiration. My Motivation. My Obsession, join Britain’s most decorated Olympian Sir Bradley Wiggins as he embarks on a 6-date UK tour. Bradley Wiggins: An Evening With provides a rare opportunity for fans to see the five-time Olympic Gold medallist and Tour De France winner share exclusive tales, prized memorabilia and career highlights in a unique and intimate live setting. The shows will be moderated by cycling presenter and friend of Bradley’s, Matt Barbet, who will also be putting audience questions to Wiggo on the night.

A British household name and undeniable national treasure, Bradley Wiggins holds the iconic track hour record and is the only cyclist who has won World and Olympic championships on both the track and the road along with winning the Tour De France.

His easy charm in front of the press is legendary and he won the 2012 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award (voted for by the public), helping cycling smash its way into the mainstream. 2013 brought further success, including the Tour of Britain title, and in 2014 Wiggins added the rainbow jersey to his collection by winning the World Time Trial Championships.

The Summer of 2016 saw Wiggins win his 5th gold medal at the Rio Olympics in the team pursuit and his eighth Olympic medal overall, making him Britain’s most decorated Olympian ever and rounding off one of the most impressive sporting careers the nation has ever witnessed.

Announcing his retirement from professional cycling at the end of 2016, Wiggins said, “2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards, ‘feet on the ground, head in the clouds’ kids from Kilburn don’t win Olympic Golds and Tour de Frances! They do now.”

 Wiggins’ latest release ‘Icons’ takes readers on an extraordinarily intimate journey through the sporting world, presenting key pieces from his never-before-seen collection of memorabilia. Bradley will reflect on the icons, races and moments that have fundamentally influenced him on both professional and personal levels. (Released 1st November and available at each live show on the tour).

Sir Bradley Wiggins is a British former professional road and track racing cyclist and Britain’s most decorated Olympian.

Wiggins made his name on the track and racked up six world titles and three Olympic gold medals before focusing fully on the road. A podium place at the 2009 Tour de France demonstrated Wiggins’s Grand Tour potential and he earned a spell in the Maglia Rosa at the 2010 Giro d’Italia before taking his first UCI World Tour race win at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine.

A second Grand Tour podium followed at the 2011 Vuelta a Espana before Wiggins embarked on a near-perfect run in 2012 which saw him win four races on his way to the Tour de France yellow jersey.

His 2012 Olympics win on the streets of London cemented his position not just within his sport but as a household name in Britain. His easy charm in front of the press was legendary and he won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, voted for by the public, this proved that cycling was smashing its way into the mainstream.

2013 brought further success, including the Tour of Britain title, and in 2014 Wiggins added the rainbow jersey to his collection by winning the World Time Trial Championships.

In 2015, Wiggins signed a contract extension with Team Sky until the end of April 2015, before transferring to his newly found Team WIGGINS in order to prepare alongside other members of the British track endurance squad for the team pursuit at the 2016 Rio Olympics. On 7 June 2015, Wiggins broke the hour record, riding 54.536km (33.881 mi), surpassing Dowsett’s mark of 52.937km (32.894 mi) set five weeks earlier.

The Summer of 2016 saw Wiggins win his 5th gold medal at the Rio Olympics in the team pursuit and his eighth Olympic medal, making him Britain’s most decorated Olympian ever.

Announcing his retirement from professional cycling at the end of 2016, Wiggins said, “2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards, ‘feet on the ground, head in the clouds’ kids from Kilburn don’t win Olympic Golds and Tour de Frances! They do now.”

Off the track, Bradley has made numerous radio and ‘TV’ appearances including a special recording put together for BBC Radio 6 Music in which he discussed his love of music and mod culture alongside Paul Weller, after playing guitar with him at a charity concert back in 2012.

Wiggins has written a number of books about his career. The first, entitled In Pursuit of Glory, covers his success as a track cyclist at the Beijing Olympics, In My Time – the golden year of 2012 and My Hour.

Commercially, Wiggins has previously collaborated with Fred Perry clothing label to develop an authentic, non-technical range of cycle wear. Also, Halfords have a series of “Wiggins bikes”, designed to encourage children to get out cycling #youcanfly. Most recently Wiggins has announced his long-term strategic partnership with Skoda.

The world of professional cycling is fraught with fierce competition, fervent dedication and unerring ambition, and only a handful of competitors reach iconic status. Among them is Sir Bradley Wiggins – a man uniquely placed to reflect on the history of this remarkable sport and its unforgettable titans.

In Icons, Wiggins takes the reader on an extraordinarily intimate journey through the sport, presenting key pieces from his never-before-seen collection of memorabilia. Over the course of his illustrious career, he amassed hundreds of items often gifts from its greatest and most controversial figures. Each reflects an icon, a race or a moment that fundamentally influenced Wiggins on both a personal and professional level.

By exploring the lives and achievements of 21 of the sport’s key figures among them Fausto Coppi, Jacques Anquetil, Miguel Indurin and Tom Simpson, Wiggins sheds new light on what professional cycling demands of its best competitors. Icons lauds their triumphs, elucidates their demons and sheds light on the philosophy and psychology that comprise the unique mindset of a cycling champion.
