Bradley Wiggins’ preparations for the Giro

In 2012, Bradley Wiggins won pretty much everything going as he built towards the Tour de France and the Olympics. In 2013, he’s not had the same success.

“We all want to win bike races in the same way we want to be able to moonwalk at a party. But it’s not always possible.”

This is very true. A friend of mine once tried to moonwalk in a crowded pub. His slip-on shoe demonstrated it was equally adept at being a slip-off shoe, he nearly fell over and succeeded only in spilling beer inside his now detached footwear. A stranger then laid a kindly hand on his shoulder before gently asking: “Are you all right, mate?”

I’m not too sure what this says about the Giro del Trentino.
