In 2001, his father Bradley won the individual pursuit, UEC European Under-23 Track Championships, suggesting there could be more to come from the teenager.
Wiggins followed that up with a gold in the full European track championships in 2015, as he became one of the most successful cyclists of all time, and a figurehead of the sport in Briton.
