Wiggo responds



PORRENTRUY, Switzerland (VN) — Don’t ask Bradley Wiggins about cynicism in cycling, ever.

The Briton, known for his explosive talent — and equally explosive command of profanities — let reporters here have it when asked what he thought of those who believed that to win the Tour de France riders must be doped “to the gills.”

“Honestly they’re just flipping w***ers. I can’t be doing with people like that,” Wiggins said. “It justifies their own bone idleness… because they can’t ever imagine applying themselves to anything in their lives.

“And it’s easy for them to sit under a pseudonym on Twitter and write that kind of sh*t rather than get off their arses and apply themselves and work hard at something and achieve something.”

He paused, tossed the table and left.

Wiggins is in the yellow jersey headed into Monday’s 45km time trial from Arc-st-Senans to Besançon.

while he might have been genuinely annoyed with the constant questions ... elite sportsmen, representing their team, country, sponsors and selves ... dont have the luxury of saying stuff like that.

Its not acceptable.
