Product description

Bradley Wiggins is Britain's most successful and best known cyclist. He emerged as a talented track cyclist and then moved onto the roads with increasing success, culminating in his stunning summer of 2012 when he became the first British cyclist to win the Tour and bring home the yellow jersey and then went on to win Olympic gold in the time trial. Daniel Friebe celebrates Wiggo's record breaking summer, as Team Sky took on the Tour de France and brought home the yellow jersey. He looks at the build up to the 2012 Tour as well as the strategy that brought ultimate success. 'Allez Wiggo!' - the cry of the French fans lining the roads who fell in love with our mod genius on two wheels.

Review quote

allez wiggo is well-made and well written thewashingmachinepost Combines spectacular images with touching behind-the-scenes shots Outdoor Fitness Of all the Wiggins books, this one seems to communicate the colour, excitement and impact of the race most directly. The photography is superb, with the large format doing the pictures justice, and the writing is accessible and insightful. Cycle Sport
