I don't mind a bit of individuality myself, even within a team. It seems to work for Wiggo, anyway.
Not at all... I am English / British myself.
I actually like Wiggo. I like his persona, his individuality and what he seems to have brought to the sometimes insipid and sterile world of cycling (from the outside looking in, of course)... I personally much prefer him to Froome and many others that just seem very clinical and lack a bit of personality.
As I said earlier, perhaps its a branding & marketing thing, ala David Beckham, Christiano Ronaldo, Lebron James or various other sporting Megastars, that will continue to sell merchandise long after they retire. Perhaps he just likes it... I dont know. Cavendish has his own line of kit / colours, Griepel has his little Gorilla thing going on... I am sure that there are many others that have their own little mascot / trademark to differentiate themselves a little, in the industry. I just find that the Mod Motif that Wiggo uses lacks a bit of originality, is all.
Up the Gunners!!
Another point in his favour.
Oh, thats it. We're done here... We are just not going to get along.
Up the Lily Whites! #COYS!!
