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
    "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.

    "Amazing!"

    Very interesting! Thought I knew a bit about cycling but this blew me out of the water,
    Got to know amazing little details and even his psychology during his legendary 2012 year.

    "The greatest English rider to date."

    What a story from my favourite cyclists. Thank you for inspiring me to get back on to my bike. I was feeling sorry for myself in 2012 after rupturing my Achilles' tendon but that summer I've relived for Brad's glorious achievements . Great to have someone read to you ... It feels like being a child ... Like getting on the bike for the first time.

    Really enjoyed this book, having read Chris Froome's biography it's good to hear the 2012 Tour told form Bradley's perspective. A definite read for any cycle fan.
