Yeah, so I can’t be the only one who feels about 80% sure that “Wiggo’s” much discussed transfer to Team Sky will turn out to be the biggest flop of the 2010 season, right? No doubt that Wiggins is immensely talented, and I can’t blame him for jumping on the big payday.
Nonetheless, this whole thing feels so much like the Chris Boardman mania of the early to mid 1990s (particularly for those of us who were reading Cycle Sport when it truly was an English import magazine and highly partisan). This is the year he will finally win the Tour! Or maybe just crash on Day 2. Or, finish 135th.
