‘Superhuman’ Pidcock can win Tour one day | Froome still world class
Bradley Wiggins and Matt Stephens return to discuss Stage 12 of the Tour de France on the latest episode of the Bradley Wiggins Show.
There’s praise for Tom Pidcock whose “almost superhuman” performance left Matt on the verge of tears after he became the youngest ever winner on Alpe d’Huez.
The 22-year-old became the second British winner – after Geraint Thomas - on the iconic col and Wiggins has tipped the Yorkshireman as a winner of the Tour de France in the future. The 2012 winner thinks that the Tour de France suits him best of all the Grand Tours.
There is also praise for the new environment on show at his team Ineos under the guidance of Steve Cummings and Rod Ellingworth.
Arguably, though, the story of the day was Chris Froome’s return to form with a third-placed finish. Wiggins says it is testament to his resilience and perseverance to return to world-class form following three years of rehabilitation.
