Olympic and World medallist Bradley Wiggins will have his own twenty-minute
slot on BBC's Grandstand on Sunday 29th April. With a working title of " A
day in the life of Bradley Wiggins", the feature will be shown at
approximately 4.30pm. It will showcase a young rider who is widely regarded
as one of the best prospects in British cycling. Bradley was the BBC's first
choice cyclist for the series, which features Olympic medallist's from
Sydney and Gold medal hopes for Athens 2004. After filming, BBC producer
Jane Rees said "Bradley is a natural, so young but so at ease with the
camera and mike. He was a pleasure to work with."
As well as winning Olympic and World Team Pursuit medals in 2000, Wiggins was Junior World Champion (Individual Pursuit) in 1998 and recently won the
Centurion Tour of Majorca.
"I am flattered they asked me and very happy the BBC are giving British cycling some great exposure," said Wiggins.
