Congrats to Bradley Wiggins - World Champion.....
Sir Bradley Wiggins has produced one of the best performances of his career to claim the World Time Trial Gold medal at the world cycling championships in Spain earlier this week.
Wiggins' performance, which saw him beat his great rival, the triple world champion Tony Martin, by 26sec over a 47.1km course, means the 2012 Tour de France winner becomes the first man to win the Tour as well as Olympic and world titles on both track and road.
Bradley is only the second Briton ever to claim a world time trial gold, Chris Boardman was the first back in 1994. He went into the event as second favourite behind Tony Martin who was looking for a fourth consecutive world title and had previously beaten Bradley into second place in 2011 and 2013.
Bradley was well pleased with the result especially as this season hasn't been a good one by his standards. He is now looking forward to an attempt at victory in Paris-Roubaix next year, as well as a crack at the Hour record whilst building up for his career swansong on the track at the 2016 olympics.
