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.

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!

Details details....

Brad seems one of the most honest fellas ever. I really liked the book even if there wasn't anywhere near enough detail- he seemed to only scratch the surface. But he deserves the riches of his efforts, top man!
