sky bradley wiggins the hour

Sir Bradley Wiggins is taking on cycling's gruelling Hour Record on Sunday. And Sky customers and those of you have resisted signing up for the pay-TV provider's output can see all the action live on Sky and on Freeview.

'Sir Bradley Wiggins: The Hour' will see Wiggins head to the Lee Valley VeloPark to attempt to break the record set by Alex Dowsett last month for the furthest distance a rider can cycle within an hour. Dowsett managed 52.937km.

It will be broadcast on Sky Sports 2, but also on Freeview channel PICK. As well as that, a livestream will be available on and through the Sky Sports app.

Basically, as long as you have Freeview or an internet connection, you'll be able to watch.

It will be hosted by Sky Sports presenter Sarah-Jane Mee, who will be joined by cyclists Dame Sarah Storey and Rob Hayles.

"Seeing Chris Boardman take on the Hour Record as a kid inspired me to get on my bike and I want to do the same for the next generation," said Sir Bradley Wiggins.

"I know Sky will help make it a huge event because of their longstanding commitment to cycling."

Robert Tansey, brand director for Sky, added: "Bradley is one of the few characters who transcends cycling and the fact that tickets to the event sold out in minutes shows just how popular his record attempt is going to be.

"Together Sky and Bradley have already shared in some historic moments and we hope people across the UK will enjoy this next one with us."
