Bradley Wiggins, in an interview with Men 's Health UK, said: "Yes, I was harassed by a coach when I was younger. An episode that I never fully accepted and that had a strong impact on me even as an adult. I tried to bury it all.
My stepfather was pretty violent with me, he used to call me a fag for wearing Lycra and stuff, so I didn't think I could tell him. So I closed in on myself. I was such a loner. I was a pretty weird teenager in many ways and I think the bicycle was an answer to all these adversities.
My biological father, Gary Wiggins, also a cyclist? He was my hero. I wanted to test myself with him. He was a good cyclist, he could have been really good, but he was a wasted talent. He was an alcoholic, a manic depressive, quite violent and was on a lot of amphetamines and drugs at the time.
I never got any answers when he was murdered in 2008. He left us when I was little, so I first met him when I was 18. We reconnected and then separated again: we had no more intercourse in the two years prior to his death."
