Promotional Information

A full-length, in-depth and intimate memoir by Bradley Wiggins charting his journey to become the first Briton ever to win the Tour de France and his country's most decorated Olympian.

About the Author

Bradley Wiggins grew up in Kilburn in London. As a junior 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 honours list and the CBE in 2009. He currently lives in the north-west of England with his wife, Cath, and their two children, Ben and Isabella.

Reviews

"Euphoria does not last forever and so the race is always on to ensure that the books is read for those keen to know of to re-live the spine tingling moments of triumph. My Time is not at all the worst of this kind of output. Indeed, it might be among the best...there is plenty of fascinating detail" -- Alison Rudd * The Times *
"Give sports fans a glimpse into what it takes to win gold" * Closer *
"Fascinating...it covers most levels of Wiggins existence - cyclist, team leader, husband, father, son - during the most important years of his life, with the candour that has become his trademark...co-written by Guardian sports writer, William Fotheringham, who helps to tell the story in the direct but eloquent tone that Wiggins watchers will recognise countless radio and television interviews. It is an absorbing read that covers Wiggins' career from his departure from Garmin to his latest Olympic success. Cycling fans will relish the horse's mouth accounts of the triumphs they have watched unfold this year, while newcomers to the sport, attracted by the man's performances this year, both on and off the bike, should find more to enjoy" -- Timothy John * Road Cycling UK *
"If you love cycling, this makes a very welcome change from the rather saturated market of `cyclist doping confessions'" * Cycling UK *
"What makes the book special for me is the love of cycling that comes through. His passion for the sport, for its history, his awareness of where he stands in the pantheon of Lycra-clad heroes, and his inability to truly comprehend his achievements all come across in waves. And in typical Wiggins fashion, he doesn't dodge the difficult bits. He talks openly about the latest drugs scandal and the unwelcome role of moral enforcer which has been forced onto him by his newfound standing as Tour winner" * Freewheeling France (blog) *
