I'd never heard of the sprinter and pleased a footballer didn't win. Interestingly they are not releasing the votes this year.
Wiggo was the 4th cyclist to win Spoty. Tommy Simpson in 65 followed by Chris Hoy, Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins and now Geraint makes it 5.
Yes, you’re right and I wasn’t clear. I meant wiggo was the first TdF winner. Great to be reminded of the cycling SPOTY winners, I never knew tommy Simpson won.
