I think he’s said it all, he wanted to win it and now he has he’d rather not make all the life sacrifices that go with taking part in the TdF. I don’t think his career is over, he said he will compete in other tours (Poland and England) and he is still an incredible time trial racer.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Possibly not but winning the tour is something that most people only do once anyway. It really is the cumulation of a very successful racing career. He can still make a lot of money doing smaller rides, racing the cobbles, that sort of thing.
And I still think he’s great. he’d better not disappear, I’m halfway through drawing a picture of him and cuddles climbing up a hill. I’ll look a bit daft if I finish it and people ask who he is.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
I don’t think he’s finished yet, nope no way. Theres still a lot of drive in the Lad and I think he’ll win quite a few Week long races and Day long too, some of the Classics may appeal to him and I think he’ll have a good old shot at them. As far as GT’s are concerned though, after this year I think he’ll stop doing them.Posted 4 years ago
Saying all that I predict retirement in 2015.muppetWranglerMember
Given the history of British road racing the idea of winning the Tour de France must have seemed like a near impossible goal for the majority of his career. I imagine achieving something so extraordinary, even more so taken in the context of the other wins from last year and i reckon it must be very hard to motivate yourself to go through it all again for minimal additional reward.Posted 4 years agodooosukMember
Now, I’ll admit, I don’t follow road racing that much but after his recent performances, his tour withdrawal and Froome’s emergence as leader at Team Sky I did begin to think whether his career was all but over.
So, is that it for Wiggins?Posted 4 years ago
