Axbridge cyclist takes the shirt off Bradley Wiggins' back
AXBRIDGE cycling enthusiast, Gary Humphries will be cycling in the shirt of a champion after winning a national competition organised by holiday lettings agent, cottages4you.
The company launched the competition on Facebook following the Ride with Brad sportive, which took place in Lancashire this August.
Entrants were invited to compete for the cycling shirt, signed by Olympic cycling champion Bradley Wiggins, by submitting their ‘greatest achievements’.
Mr Humphries, who lives with his wife Nicola in Axbridge, was crowned victorious when his impressive achievement, cycling 100 miles in the Dartmoor Classic, caught the eye of the judges and deemed him a worthy winner.
He said: “I entered the competition as I'm a keen cyclist and the prize was a signed Bradley Wiggins jersey.
"I didn't have to think twice about the answer, cycling 100 miles in the Dartmoor Classic was definitely a very tough challenge for me, and I think it's a great achievement for anyone who completes it.
"I still can’t believe I won a signed Bradley Wiggins jersey!"
