Latest Bradley Wiggins book charts his preparation and experience setting a new UCI Hour Record

Sir Bradley Wiggins‘s new book – My Hour – charts the lead-up and experience of his successful attempt earlier this year to set a new UCI Hour Record.

Having already written his name into the cycling history books on numerous occasions, notably becoming the first British rider to win the Tour de France in 2012 and establish himself as one of Britain’s most decorated Olympians, Wiggins turned his attention to the iconic Hour record in 2015.

According to publisher Yellow Jersey Press, Wiggins’s latest tome “takes you behind the scenes of his record attempt. From planning to preparation, to training to execution, Bradley shares his thoughts on his sacrifices, his heroes, and the people who have supported him along the way as well as what’s to come as he heads towards the twilight of his stellar career”.

Wiggins successfully set a new record of 54.526km in the Lee Valley Velodrome in London on June 7, smashing the record of 52.937km set by fellow British rider Alex Dowsett the previous month.
