- ok hands up who else got wiggos book
Good point actually. The good autobiographies are the ones that have shit to spill, and biographies go into the scandals in more detail. For example in wiggos book there’s one sentence about garmin chasing down hincapie in 2009, and that was just to say it happened and it pissed cav off. Where’s the explanation behind it?Posted 5 years agoKevevsMember
He’s at the top of his game now with media/PR/publishing consultants and the like. He’s a national hero. There’s no way he’s going to spout off anything remotely interesting in a bloody book! He’s gold plated! This one’s just an embellished CV I reckon with a bit o faaamily history and some photos and whatnot, It’s a cash in. And why not, good for him.
Give it a few years and I reckon Wiggo is the sort that will mouth off about all the crap that goes on in pro road cycling though. That sort of info is now a bit of a nest egg for him and he’s got the gob and attitude for it..Posted 5 years agonicko74Member
Every year I just send out my Amazon wish list and people get me things from that.
I’ve been trying that for a while. I’ve had Millar’s autobiography on there for about 2 years now, and they’ve still not bought it for me.
I flicked through the Wiggins one (I was given it for Chrimbles) and it does seem the usual ghost-written “this happened, and then that happened, and then I called her Susan, and we all lived happily ever after, the end”.Posted 5 years agoandyrmMember
I’ve just finished reading it last night – really enjoyed it.
But then I’m not one for gossip etc, for me it was just an interesting and pretty inspiring read about a fella who has worked bl**dy hard to get where he is, and that’s what I would rather see than some retrospective bean spilling.Posted 5 years ago
