Publisher's Summary

On 22 July 2012 Bradley Wiggins became the first British man ever to win the Tour de France. In an instant, 'Wiggo' became a national hero. Ten days later, having swapped his yellow jersey for the colours of Team GB, he won Olympic gold in the time trial, adding to his previous six medals to become the nation's most decorated Olympian of all time. 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.

    Story
    "Feels like you sitting right next to Wiggo"
    Would you listen to My Time again? Why?

    Yes. The details of his 2012 racing season including his TdF win and Olympic TT gold are vivid and rich. It feels like you sitting in his living room and he is telling you stories of his epic year. Includes detail about training, preparation, his family, the team and all his highs and lows.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bradley Wiggins for obvious reasons. Its all about his road career in cycling.


    What about Tom Watt’s performance did you like?

    His British accent is awesome for sharing Brad Wiggins' story


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The deep insight into how he and his coaches went against tradition in their preparation for the 2012 racing season.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a great book that cycling fans will particularly enjoy.

    "Mixed up chapters. But interesting insights."
    Would you try another book from Bradley Wiggins and/or Tom Watt?

    Probably not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bradley Wiggins again?

    Yes, I will try again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The accent was not Bradley. A bit frustrating.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Time?

    I would order the audio book as it was written. Having chapters playing out of order was very frustrating. As the mixup happened early in the delivery, the mix up was not obvious until I had listened to 80% of it. Very disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    How do I get my money back?

    Story
    "Surprisingly excellent."

    I say "surprisingly" because while I am an avid fan of cycling and road racing, Bradley Wiggins was never a cyclist I wanted to know more about. Perhaps that is because in 2012, he simply won too many races and his face was everywhere, so I felt there was no need to root for him nor research his backstory. Wow, I was so wrong! It is really good. I loved Wiggins' take on cycling and the story of his races. I was surprised by the story of his family background, especially his relationship with his father and grandfather. He has a great attitude, uses plenty of colorful language, and seems like a person you'd like to hang out with. I agree with other reviewers about the narrator - he really sells it. One of the best match-ups on Audible.

    "Humble, funny, and interesting....I really dug it"
    If you could sum up My Time in three words, what would they be?

    A really great listen and loved the narrator. Read this book and read Chris Froomes book back to back and you will get a full picture! Loved it!


    What other book might you compare My Time to and why?

    Chris Froome: the climb. He talks about Wiggins and the tour and all that went behind the scenes....also a great read or listen!


    What about Tom Watt’s performance did you like?

    He set the tone and attitude of Wiggins. Loved it.

    "boring"

    After listening to Froomes "The Climb" I would expect Braddley's literally attempt to be entertaining, if not exciting.

    Perhaps it's just me and my unfair expectations, but there is no mild way to put it: I found the story line just plain boring. Specially during the first third of it more or less.

    The speaker seemed to have tried his best trying to instill some life to the story; at wich he succeeded to a certain extent.

    Still waiting for a Cycling book in the league of Krabbés "The Rider" - now that's something I can listen and re-listen, and seemingly never get tired from.

    "Better Than I Expected"

    I knew a bit about Wiggin's before this year's TdF win having followed the tour fairly closely since the mid 1990's. Whilst there was no doubting his talent, I had never found him all that likeable - he always seemed aloof and had a bit too much swagger for my liking. Having finished My Time, I have to say my opinion of him has changed. He comes across as very humble and grounded. Whilst he acknowledges that he doesn't suffer fools gladly and isn't especially comfortable with his new-found fame, it's hard not to admire his dedication to the sport. The narrator does a good job and sounds much like the man himself which helps.

    "Like listening to Wiggo"

    Although Bradley does not narrate this book, the guy who does is excellent! He uses his voice to great effect so it's like listening to a tale told down the pub. Especially funny in my view is his great emphasis in profanity. I loved it!

    "So much better than I thought it would be."
    What made the experience of listening to My Time the most enjoyable?

    Really honest account, don't think his holding anything back and this came out in pretty quick order following the success of 2012 so I smelt a 'cash-in knocked another Bio out in five minutes' jobs but it was much better than that is a really good read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Time?

    A good understanding of what its like to be inside the maillot jaune.


    What about Tom Watt’s performance did you like?

    really well read by Tom Watt.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well two sitting's actually, whilst smashing national cycle route 3!

    This was surprisingly an amazing listen, really well written and narration by Tom Watt embodies as if Brad was reading it.

    I could easily listen to this again in a year's time.

    inspirational and with hindsight everything written links to his story/path

    Story
    "Mostly rubbish"
    What disappointed you about My Time?

    This was a rushed attempt to cash in on Brad's moment in the limelight. Nothing about what makes him tick as an athlete or a human being came through.


    Has My Time put you off other books in this genre?

    If other cycling books are anything like this, then yes.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Yes. Tom Watt's performance sounds ridiculously rushed .. he ignores punctuation and any inflexion. He sounds like a robot.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Very few. I pretty much hated it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is just one of the poorest books that I've ever experienced in audio format, which is a massive shame given the subject. Get something like "Eat & Run" buy Scott Jurek instead if you want an sporting autobiography that you can connect with.
