See, its reassuring to all us rank amateur herberts to know that life can throw even the best riders the occasional metaphorical stick in the spokes. Now Brad mate, if I was yr coach I’d have you running a little known roller training-aid known as the ‘turbitowel’. Handy, absorbent and just the right size to make those out-of-control towel moments a thing of the past.

I think this is what’s known in the trade as a ‘McClelland’. You’d have to ask him why.

Wiggins okay despite training accident

Great Britain’s Bradley Wiggins has suffered what he describes as a minor setback ahead of his international track racing return next week, after suffering a suspected groin strain and cuts to the head in a bizarre training accident. The Olympic pursuit champion was thrown over the handlebars of his bike while training on the rollers last week when a sweat towel got caught in the front wheel causing it to lock.

“I think this is a minor setback,” British track coach Shane Sutton told The Guardian. “He is in really good shape and given the way he is going I don’t think it will destroy his form. He’s a little bit down about it, but mentally it’s about drawing a line and moving on.”

Wiggins returns to track racing this weekend at the Manchester round of the Track World Cup and before turning his attention to preperations for this year’s Tour de France, which kicks off in his home town of London.
