Champion cyclist Wiggins reveals weird music tastes made him loner at school

London, Dec 26(ANI): Tour de France champion and Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins has revealed he was treated like a freak at school because of his music tastes.

As part of a Radio 6 Music Christmas show, Wiggins, who is now loved by millions - talked about growing up as a mod and being an outcast, the Daily Mirror reports.

Wiggins said he was a bit of a loner at school because he was into what he was into that sort of scene and that is where the whole mod thing started when I was 14/15.

The champion cyclist added if you went out in a Parka on a Scooter you were looked upon as a bit of a freak and in late eighties early nineties it had gone through a revival and dipped off again.

Wiggins revealed he went to see Ocean Colour Scene at Shepherds Bush and felt part of something.

Wiggins also said that he used to go to Tottenham Hotspur and watch them week in week out and dressed like people on the terraces. (ANI)
