Bradley Wiggins 2012

Bradley Wiggins Drawing
Bradley is a champion cyclist from Great Britain. He rides for Team Sky, based out of The National Cycling Centre in Manchester England where my Father was born. In this years Tour De France, when Bradley was named as one of the pre race favorites, my father and I started routing for him. Bradley won the Tour, and became Englands first winner ever. He won Stage 19, the long and grueling individual time trial, to cap off a dominating tour. Weeks later, Bradley won the individual time trial in the Summer Olympics. In doing so, he became the only rider to ever win a Grand Tour event and a Olympic gold medal in the same summer. He also became the only winner ever to win an Grand Tour event, and an Olympic gold medal in a track cycling event. He started out as a track cyclist, and has won 7 total Olympic medals now (2000,2004,2008,2012), tying him with track cyclist Chris Hoy to become England most decorated Olympic athlete ever in any sport.
