Never has the Hour Record enjoyed so much attention. It was impossible to escape coverage of Bradley Wiggins’s attempt all weekend with everybody living inside the M25 either boasting they had tickets for the Lee Valley Velodrome or they knew of somebody else lucky enough to be going. This year even The Derby was surpassed as the big event.

But let’s be honest. Sunday wasn’t about the Hour; it was all about Bradley, the latest instalment of Wiggo mania. We know him as a bike rider but to the rest of the nation he’s something else; Britain’s cycling knight.
