With his Sixties mod ethos, Bradley Wiggins should have made his name hustling punters in working men's clubs, battering those who beat him over the head with the cue. But no, the 36-year-old has spent his career making a case to be considered one of the greatest cyclists of all time, winning, among many other titles, the Tour De France, and not to mention enough Olympic Gold to put Mr. T to shame.
And with Wiggo now announcing his retirement from cycling, and the sport subsequently becoming 250 per cent less cool, we’ve compiled an extremely stylish gallery of the man’s greatest looks.
