"Britain's most successful all-round cyclist"Add to my shortlist
A podium place at the 2009 Tour de France demonstrated Wiggins's Grand Tour potential and he earned a spell in the Maglia Rosa at the 2010 Giro d'Italia before taking his first UCI World Tour race win at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine. A second Grand Tour podium followed at the 2011 Vuelta a España before he embarked on a near-perfect run in 2012 which saw him win four races on his way to the Tour de France yellow jersey. In 2012 he won BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. 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. In 2016 he won his 5th gold medal at the Rio Olympics in the team pursuit and his eighth Olympic medal, making him Britain's most decorated Olympian ever.
