Bradley Wiggins’ Tour de France and Olympic bikes

From Pinarello to UK Sport

Just over a week ago, Bradley Wiggins made history by becoming the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France. And while he and Team GB missed out on a medal in the Olympic men’s road race last Saturday, Wiggins goes into tomorrow’s Olympic time trial as the favourite.

Our photographer Rob Wilmott was at the Tour and the Olympic road race and got a good look at the various bikes that Wiggins has been riding. From the yellow themed Pinarello Graal time trial bike that he used to win the final Tour time trial to the UK Sport road bike that he rode in the Olympic road race, it’s all here in one gallery. If you look closely you can see some of the customised parts that are a hallmark of any Wiggins machine.

Wiggins's one piece time trial bar and stem has a distinctly Great Britain track team influence. We suspect it may reappear in the Olympic time trial
