Bradley Wiggins: An Evening With provides a rare opportunity for fans to see the five time Olympic Gold medallist and Tour De France winner share exclusive tales, prized memorabilia and career highlights in a unique and intimate live setting. The shows will be moderated by ITV cycling Matt Barbet, who will also be putting your questions to Wiggo on the night.
His easy charm in front of the press is legendary and he won the 2012 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award (voted for by the public), helping cycling smash its way into the mainstream. 2013 brought further success, including the Tour of Britain title and in 2014 Wiggins added the rainbow jersey to his collection by winning the World Time Trial Championships. The Summer of 2016 saw Wiggins win his 5th gold medal at the Rio Olympics in the team pursuit and his eighth Olympic medal overall, making him Britain’s most decorated Olympian ever and rounding off one of the most impressive sporting careers the nation has ever witnessed.
Announcing his retirement from professional cycling at the end of 2016, Wiggins said, '2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards, ‘feet on the ground, head in the clouds’ kids from Kilburn don’t win Olympic Golds and Tour de Frances! They do now.'
Wiggins’ latest release Icons takes readers on an extraordinarily intimate journey through the sporting world, presenting key pieces from his never before seen collection of memorabilia. Bradley will reflect on the icons, races and moments that have fundamentally influenced him on both professional and personal levels.
