Sure Wiggo has achieved a lot and not to take anything away from that but should that be enough to be called a Sir? Surely an OBE or MBE is sufficient, and the knighthoods can be reserved for those who have made a truly exceptional contribution to society.

You don't think being the first Brit TdF yellow is enough to earn a good hard dubbing from Her Maj?

Neither do I.

Nah. But the Brits don't have a lot of real heros these days, do they?

I never really liked Wiggins or team sky for that matter. Just read that Wiggo only recently paid Froome his TdF bonus. I feel justified in not liking Wiggo now.

I wish Froome completed his attack on Wiggo on that famous day in the mountains.
