Sir Bradley Wiggins clocks a winning time of 19-15 in his local time trial, winning by nearly 40 seconds from his nearest rival

Imagine you turn up to a 10mi time trial and you see a chap riding a state-of-the-art Pinarello in a full Team Wiggins skinsuit with rainbow stripes round the sleeves.

It’s either an exceptionally keen amateur, or the man himself. On Tuesday night it was the latter as Sir Bradley Wiggins turned up to the D10/1 event in Bickerstaffe, much to the amazement of the regulars.

The 2014 world time trial champion clocked a pretty decent time on the 10mi course, recording 19-15, according to the handwritten results sheet.

A screenshot of the results from Twitter user @KevCawley shows that Wiggins was 39 seconds faster than second place rider Phil Williams from Liverpool Phoenix.

Wiggins is training towards attempting to win his fifth Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016, where he is likely to form part of the team pursuit squad taken to Brazil.
