Lancashire’s Sir Bradley Wiggins has become the latest high-profile British sportsman to sign up with Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment.
Eccleston-based Wiggins, who won last year’s Tour de France before claiming Olympic gold in the time trial at London 2012, has signed a joint venture agreement with the management company, whose clients include David Beckham and Lewis Hamilton.
Wiggins, who plans to compete for Team GB at the Rio Olympics in 2016, said: “I admire Simon’s fearless mindset and proven ability to create new possibilities. I am proud of my career to date, but still feel there is much to accomplish, both personally and for cycling as a whole. I know Simon and his team are the best people to help me do that.”
Fuller said: “Bradley is an inspiring man of the people, who has endeared himself to followers worldwide.”
