Well done Wiggins, I expected Ben Ainslie to be in the top 3 after all he has achieved, maybe he will get another chance if he can win the Americas cup.

Sense of humour failure by the crisp muncher when Wiggy tried to kiss him.


Wiggo was the only choice. Would love to know why Laura Trott, Carl Froch and Graeme Swann weren't in the running though.
From what I can gather from the media TO, all the various boats crews are multi-national, it's just the owners who are the nationals. Ben has close links with Oracle Racing was brought onboard as a tactician originally.


Book Reviewer
To be fair, there is talk of him being in the UK crew next time around and I would think that this experience would be helpful
