Doco on Wiggins

Maybe this is old news to all but just watched the doco - must admit was not a fan at all but glad I watched it. Have always felt an unreasonable & unwarranted degree of hostility towards him -attitude on the bike seemed too clinical for me to get excited about him as a cyclist - and off the bike I thought he was a tosser - bit more balanced in my view now.

I watched this the other day....a very interesting doco and it certainly shows there is more behind the man than just his "clinical cycling".

But I guess when you have that many people backing you and have that much pressure to perform you need to believe in yourself and display at least a little self-confidence :-)

I'm sure if they did docos of all the main riders we would be amazed at the back stories and their trials and tribulations of everyday life which we are not normally privvy to.

There was another excellent doco on the BSkyB team with their 5 year goal to win the tour and win medals at the Olympics.....

Very interesting, the philosophy of small gains everywhere in the team.....

It's on a BitTorrent site near you !

On youtube also.

Good to see he's human and finds it hard to stick to training.

Watched this the other day ... are Dave Brailsford's lines scripted by Ricky Gervais? The lonely/loner thing was classic.

I watched the Sky team 5 part series and definitely have a new respect for Wiggins and the lengths the sky team go to. Good watch and I recommend it!

Did they ask Wiggins in the doco why Sky hired well known doping Doctor Leinders?
