Wiggins crashes local cycling club time trial

by CyclingTips

It is not every day local amateurs get to match-up against an Olympic medalist and world champion. But the participants in last Tuesday’s Liverpool Phoenix cycling club got to do just that, as Bradley Wiggins decided to join them on their weekly time trial.

Riding for his team, Wiggins, and wearing a skinsuit with rainbow stripes on the arms to signify his status as a former world champ, he completed the 10 mile (16.1km) distance in 19:15, a season-best.

The time was 40 seconds faster than the club’s usual weekly winner, Phil Williams, who took second place.

Wiggins lives in nearby Eccleston, and is currently at home training for the Rio Olympics.
