While all the talk over the past 24 hours or so has been about his intentions for the Tour de France and relationship with Chris Froome, Sir Bradley Wiggins has the small matter of the Giro d'Italia to deal with first - the Team Sky rider and Astana's Vincenzo Nibali are expected to be the main challengers for the maglia rosa, although there are a number of other riders who'll be looking to lay claim to it.
In this video from Team Sky clothing supplier Rapha, Wiggins talks about how he fuelled his passion for cycling as a teen by picking up magazines on eBay - given he's 33 now, and eBay was founded in 1995 but adopted its present name two years later, that makes him an impressively early adopter if our maths are correct - and also gives his thoughts about the Giro.
"I'd love to win the Tour of Italy and add that to the Tour de France," he says. "It's the other race that inspires me the most, it's an historical race and so many greats have won it. It's probably more romantic than the Tour, really, in cycling history.
"I think mainstream, everyone's 'the Tour de France,' but in cycling terms the Giro is probably more of a romantic race, I suppose, everyone loves watching it. So I would love to try and win that."
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
