On 22 July 2012 Bradley Wiggins became the first British man ever to win the Tour de France. In an instant, 'Wiggo' became a national hero. Ten days later, having swapped his yellow jersey for the colours of Team GB, he won Olympic gold in the time trial, adding to his previous six medals to become the nation's most decorated Olympian of all time. Outspoken, honest, intelligent and fearless, Wiggins has been hailed as the people’s champion.
In My Time he tells the story of the remarkable journey that led to him winning the world’s toughest race. He opens up about his life on and off the bike, about the personal anguish that has driven him on and what it’s like behind the scenes at Team Sky: the brutal training regimes, the sacrifices and his views on his teammates and rivals. He talks too about his anger at the spectre of doping that pursues his sport, how he dealt with the rush of taking Olympic gold, and above all what it takes to be the greatest.

Mixed up chapters. But interesting insights.
Would you try another book from Bradley Wiggins and/or Tom Watt?
Would you ever listen to anything by Bradley Wiggins again?
Yes, I will try again.
How could the performance have been better?
The accent was not Bradley. A bit frustrating.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Time?
I would order the audio book as it was written. Having chapters playing out of order was very frustrating. As the mixup happened early in the delivery, the mix up was not obvious until I had listened to 80% of it. Very disappointing.
Any additional comments?
How do I get my money back?

Bradley Wiggins for obvious reasons. Its all about his road career in cycling.
