Bradley Wiggins: My Time An Autobiography by Bradley Wiggins

Outspoken, honest, intelligent and fearless, Wiggins has been hailed as the people's champion. In My Time he tells the story of the remarkable journey that led to him winning the world's toughest race. He opens up about his life on and off the bike, about the personal anguish that has driven him on and what it's like behind the scenes at Team Sky: the brutal training regimes, the sacrifices and his views on his teammates and rivals. He talks too about his anger at the spectre of doping that pursues his sport, how he dealt with the rush of taking Olympic gold and above all what it takes to be the greatest.

'Like the man himself, captivating' -- Simon Yeend Daily Express

'We get raw thrilling Wiggins, as if we're his mates in the pub as he tells us how he won the Tour de France and Olympic gold for afters' -- Nick Pitt Sunday Times

'Listening to Bradley Wiggins is a pleasure unmatched in British sport. Whether the topic is gearing or psychology, Wiggins speaks in paragraphs of pure practical wisdom, liberally peppered with swearwords... The latest reflections from the sage of Kilburn ring true and clear' -- Rowland Manthorpe Sunday Telegraph

'It bristles with details of his sinew-straining dedication and the almost maniacal attention to detail that powers any athlete to legend status' -- Charlotte Heathcote Sunday Express
