The inside story of Bradley Wiggins's record-breaking ride. For 60 minutes this summer, the British public stopped what they were doing, switched on their radios, their TVs, refreshed their Twitter feeds and followed Bradley Wiggins’s attempt to break one of sport’s most gruelling records: The Hour. The premise is simple enough: how far can you cycle in one hour. But it is thought to be one of the toughest events an athlete can endure, both physically and psychologically. Eddy Merckx, cycling’s über-champ, called it the hardest thing he ever did. Wiggins, like many before him, discovered.
Armstrong jerseys from Bradley Wiggins’ collection. Lance’s story has been told ad infinitum, but for me one of the most interesting aspects is his transformation from Classics rider to post-cancer Grand Tour rider.

When, in June, Bradley Wiggins attempted to break the record for the furthest distance cycled in one hour at the Olympic velodrome in London, the atmosphere was more akin to a boxing match – he came out to the Supremes’ Stoned Love, had crew cut his expansive quiff and then displayed superhuman powers of endurance. My Hour, written with cycling author and journalist William Fotheringham, gets to the heart of not only what it took technically for Wiggins to get to 5. 26km but, crucially, how his mind was as important as his legs and lungs. The slick photography lends the book a coffee table feel and the asides on Wiggins’s heroes who also attempted the hour (Merckx, Coppi, Boardman) are not only heartfelt but emphasise his need for the record.
