Wiggo’s Back On Track!

Everyone’s favorite mod cyclist, Bradley Wiggins, announced that he will be returning to the velodrome for the UCI World Cup in Manchester this February. He hasn’t been competing on track for the past couple of years but he’ll be shooting for the Team Pursuit event at the 2012 Olympics. Says he, “With the Olympics being in London - potentially my last Olympics, I don’t know - it will be a fantastic way to finish. To get another gold medal there in the team pursuit, will be the goal now for us.” Good to have you back, Wiggo!

Tony Graham just came across a couple old shots he took of these futuristic bikes built for the East Germany team and used in the Individual and Team Pursuits.  Twenty-two years later and that bike still looks like it’s from the future.

I’ve recently been watching some VHS tapes I have of the UCI World Championships in the early 90’s and the German team were rocking these bikes.  It’s great to be able to see one in more detail.

Thanks, Tony!  Check out his Flickr for more great cycling photos.
