    Bradley Wiggins vs Andy Birdsall: Wiggo’s minute man prepares for time trial of his life

  • "Wiggins made the catch before the starter had let go of his minute man... "

  • Wiggo's whip. Bit aesthetically challenging, but he's earned every colour on it..

  • ^mechanical...?

    wold have thought shimano would throw so 'lectric at him...

    oh just realised it's SRAM...

  • The stock Bolide was almost passable but pretty much all of their bikes are hideous and that's coming from someone well aware of the Shiv's looks.

  • Yeah, don't think white is a good choice and those Zipp WC wheels have always looked a bit wank.

    Front isn't too shocking, rear should really have been Team Wiggo roundel, not rainbow strips on white.

  • So true!

  • First TT of the year Gravesend CC 10 twenty six riders I was number twenty six, very windy to the turn an abysmal 26:26
    It was also the first try of my Geoff Roberts in TT mode on 88" fixed, tweaked the saddle up higher since then for another go next Tuesday.

  • I'm off work the Tuesday after (26th), maybe see you there?

  • Got Tops off a minute after me for the Hounslow. How long will I last?

  • Wiggins about 5 mins away from starting the City Road Club 10... Will he beat Dowsett's mark?

  • His minute man has put a Go Pro on his saddle so seeing the pass will be interesting

  • @dubtap are you there? Or are the pics from twitter? TTF seems to be struggling under the anticipation. 200 people reading the thread when I last looked and now it won't refresh.

  • Twitter

  • Twitter saying he missed it, 17:58

  • reports of 17:58?

  • 17:58

    Not even a PB :-)

  • Interesting to see he's ditched the Kask now he's stopped riding for Team Sky.

    I have no idea what it is tho.

  • His UKSI helmet from 2012 Olympics

  • 34.9 mph average for 9 miles. 23.8 for the last mile. Monster headwind in the last mile I assume

  • Nah, he's just shit at TTs, paced it badly and cracked. ;)

  • Not even as quick as Hutchinson.

    I'm glad I didn't buy a ticket for his hour attempt.
