Not only is he Britain’s first ever Tour de France winner, Bradley Wiggins surpassed Sir Steve Redgrave as his country’s most decorated Olympian at the London 2012 Olympics.
Named BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2012 in December, Mod icon Wiggins defies all of the cycling stereotypes. In fact it was reported in The Sun yesterday that his award takes pride of place in his local pub (the Original Farmers Arms in Eccleston) where Bradley is a regular.
In the New Year’s Honours List, Bradley has also been awarded a knighthood. He stated that it was a fitting tribute for himself and the other athletes recognised on the list.
When it comes to his sunglasses, Sir Bradley certainly likes Oakley. When cycling, he wears the Oakley Jawbone and it is said that this is his favourite sports frame. He is also a big fan of the classic Holbrook frame too (pictured).
