The cycling world watched with bated breath as Wiggins attacked the Hour at Lee Valley Velodrome yesterday.
He is the new Hour Record Holder, having covered 54.526km in sixty minutes – and everyone at TWC extends a huge congratulations to him for joining the ranks of great names who have held the honour.
Of course, everyone loves a good ‘Wiggins quote’ – and after his Hour, the Brit rider came out with a corker. Following the effort, he told reporters:
I’m just glad it’s done. That’s the closest to knowing what it’s like to have a baby… It was tortuous. You’re counting down the minutes.
What do you guys think – can the two be compared? Were you counting the minutes to sixty during labour? We suppose only Dame Sarah Storey could answer that question with true authority…
