British star Bradley Wiggins reveals his depth of love for music and his impressive guitar collection in this month's issue of Cycle Sport magazine.
It's common knowledge that the Garmin-Slipstream rider is a fan of music, but few will realise that he is also an avid collector of vintage guitars, with several sought-after models in his possession.
