Palma.—The greatest cyclist in the world right now, Bradley Wiggins, made no secret that, as soon as he could after the Tour de France and competing in the Olympics, he would be flying out to Majorca with his family for a well earned holiday.

And, true to his word, he arrives today having become the first Briton to have ever won the Tour and gold in the men's time trial last Wednesday.
Wiggins just loves Majorca. Not only has he, with the rest of the British cycling team and now Team Sky trained on the island for over a decade, he also comes on holiday here.

Wiggins, who has not had a proper break since last November, after his recent achievements could probably have picked any where in the world for a holiday. But, for Bradley and the family, it has got to be Majorca.

Wiggin's Tour de France and subsequent Olympic success has helped to put Majorca in the spotlight as a major cycling destination with the British media having published a host of features about the island, what it has to offer cyclists and how to follow in Wiggins' training footsteps.

An estimated 50'000 cyclists come to Majorca every year, mainly in the Spring and the Autumn, but none of them as famous and talented as Bradley Wiggins.

One thing I think is for sure, you will not be seeing Bradley on a bicycle during his Majorcan holiday.
