Not much debate about this one – Sir Bradley Wiggins is considered one of the best cyclists Britain has ever produced. Wiggins has a colourful career and won six full world championships on the track, three in the individual pursuit and two in the team pursuit and one in the Madison. What’s more impressive is his record with gold medals at three successive games in the individual pursuit, team pursuit and after his conversion to the road and the time trial.
Betting on Bradley Wiggins
Team Britain is the favourite for the track team pursuit and odds are currently at 18/25 to take home the gold. Brazil 2016 will be the last games that Wiggins will compete in and he’ll be looking to end on a very high note and go down in history yet again. In the previous games in London, Bradley Wiggins dominated the Men’s individual time trial, finishing fast with almost a minute to spare as the time difference between first place and second was 42 seconds. The only way to bet on cycling is to bet outright and a £10 bet on Bradley Wiggins and co. will potentially return £17.20, which is pretty lucrative considering the form and how Team Britain is the clear favourite. Although Wiggins has stated that this will be his final competition before retirement, it’s always possible for the man to make a return especially since the rider has proved he can achieve anything he sets his mind to.
Wiggins will be targeting his fifth gold medal in Brazil 2016, forming part of the Team Pursuit squad which is looking to take first place for the third consecutive time.
