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.

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.
