Love it. It is this kind of incident which separates cycling from the more mundane sports (and I say this as a keen runner/triathlete.) cheers RR.

Do you know what race it was? It doesn't say he bridged in the article. And he finished well off the pace in all three races. I suppose he could have been bridging from group 3 to 2.

Ps. the M-G kit is awesome. I just checked the team lineup and was pleasantly surprised to see Alex Peters there - have seen him in action at Redbridge, Crystal Palace and tearing past as a youngster in the early hours of the morning at Dunwich Dynamo.

Isn't the story about Wiggins being told by Alex Peters?

It doesn't say (and yes I can see the photo), not that it matters who it is.

Who does Wiggins think he is? Lording it around the peloton like some self-appointed patron... He makes me sick.

It doesn't say what stage of the race this occurred, just that the bunch split in half. My inference would be that they bridged back to the front half.

I know, I know. What with him being winner of the Tour De France, Critérium du Dauphiné, Paris–Nice, Tour de Romandie and four Olympic Gold medals. Terrible, really.

Exceptionally well written piece, very evocative and captures the spirit of cycling.
