The Telegraph reported Wiggins as saying, about today:
“We handled that pretty well, so an hour time trial to make history should be a doddle.”
This is an out-and-out-lie. What he said was:
“So next up is the time trial. It’s been a long road to get there: my buildup for the Tour began on 1 November last year, and that buildup always took into account the fact we would be racing the time trial nine days after the Tour and three days after the road race. I’m not worried about recovering from the road race. I was exhausted at the end, we all were, but I’ve had three days to recover. I don’t think it’s as much of an issue as it seemed nine months ago. On the final Saturday of the Tour I rode one of the best time trials I’ve ever done in terms of numbers, and that came after a hard 220km stage the day before and two tough stages in the Pyrenees before that. In comparison, doing the Olympic road race and then having three days off is a doddle.”
Which profession has the lowest quality people:
This is being written and scheduled at 12:45. I don’t know what the result will be and I won’t be around to see it. Whatever it is, he did NOT say it would be a doddle to win gold.
