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.

    Story
    "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.

    "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!

    Story
    "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!

    "Seeing as the Tour de France is on."
    What did you like most about My Time?

    What did you like best about this story?

    Discovering Brady Wiggen's other achievements, including winning gold in the 2012 Olympics.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Watt – was your favourite?

    First audio book in have listened to that has been narrated by Tom Watt and woud download others narrated by him. Makes listening easy.


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

    Yes.

    Story
    "Your Time to read My Time"
    Would you listen to My Time again? Why?

    Absolutely. The audiobook is completely engaging. It describes the challenges that Bradley has gone through to reach the heights he achieved in July 2012 as well as educating the reader about the life as a professional cyclist.


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

    Any other sporting autobiography.


    What about Tom Watt’s performance did you like?

    Completely engaging. He made you feel as though it was Bradley Wiggins telling the story and his change in voice for other important people within the book, such as Shane Sutton, was fantastic. Best narrating I have heard to date from an audiobook.


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

    When Bradley was rock bottom and how he pulled himself together after the death of his Grandfather


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic book. Well worth downloading

    "Enjoyable insight"

    Really enjoyed this insight into Bradley's build up to winning the Tour and the Olympic gold medal. Let's you see just how difficult this feat was and what fantastic athletes he and his cycling colleagues are. Even now the memories of these wins still bring a warm glow.

    "Classic tale of great British Sportsman"

    Following his successes last year in the Tour and at the Olympics I decided to purchase this to listen to on the train. I was enthralled by the story read so well by Tom Watt and listened to it every day until the end. It made me actually look forward to my daily commute. I now cycle regularly partly due to this story.

    "Sensational and brutally honest"

    As a cycling fan I found this to be an insightful and no holds barred read from one of sports real characters. His Tour diary and London Olympic dream was fascinating in terms of what he puts his body through, what his mind goes through and the pressures and tactics of modern day cycling. Wholeheartedly recommended!
