Wiggo for Sports Personality of the Year!

Bradley Wiggins heads the shortlist for Sports Personality of the Year this Sunday, and for the second year running, a road cyclist has a real chance of winning it. Wiggins is up against some great sportsmen and women, including two other cyclists, Chris Hoy and Sarah Storey. As good as they are, Wiggins achievements this year have been above and beyond that of any other nominee.

Arguably one of the toughest sporting events in the world, the 1,282 mile, three-week Tour de France was won in some style by Bradley Wiggins. Dominating his competitors, Wiggins wore the leader's jersey for 15 of the 21 racing days. No Olympic track gold medallist has ever gone on to win Le Tour de France. No British cyclist has won Le Tour in it's 109 year history.

Shortly after, he won gold in the Olympic road time trial with a similar dominating performance to become the joint most decorated British Olympian ever.

Wiggins has spent 2012 enthralling Britain. Outside of the sport, he's doesn't get caught up in the celebrity lifestyle that can come with sporting success. He's a true inspiration and according to Chris Boardman, is the "greatest British cyclist of all time."
