“Paint what you like and die happy.”
Stop telling people you’re fine when you’re not.

Wiggos kit for 2013What’s in the picture? This spread displays Bradley Wiggins’s kit for 2013. Pictured are roughly 300 items of clothing (a good chunk of which are socks; each rider gets blue, black and white socks, both short and long), including the standard jerseys and shorts but also the new Team Sky belt, chamois cream, Paul Smith-designed shoes, transfer jacket and essentials case. Wiggins also gets a few personalised items, like ‘mod target’ base layers. Ian Stannard’s base layers have ‘Merci Essex’ on the chest.
