Does anyone know why Bradley Wiggins didn't turn up at the NEC on Tuesday?

    He was supposed to be opening the caravan and motorhome show as well as giving some talks during the day but just didn't turn up. I wonder how many people would have made a real effort to get there on time just see him open the show (I certainly didn't) and then been disappointed? Has the reason for his non-appearance been announced yet?

    Here is a related question, I remember chatting to Geoff Capes at the show one year, what year was it when Geoff Capes was the sports guest at the NEC show. Did anyone else see him there.

    He probably stopped at the services, had a quick snort in the loo, and then..........Hey man, caravan shows matter.......?
    Cant stick the guy. What a state this country is in when someone can get a bl**dy knighthood for getting dressed up in Lycra, and peddling a £12,000 bike. :confused:

    Going off at a tangent Geoff Capes was in my form at George Farmer School Holbeach a true gentle giant.

    As he seems to be an Aspie he was probably full of fear and trepidation at the thought of appearing in front of Thousands of people and having to speak. He probably just retreated to a safer place, like home. Especially after the stuff being thrown at him recently he will not be seen for a long time.

    Another (and more likely possibility imho) reason might be that he is sulking as he was not chosen to ride in Doha.

    It's a small world Rolly, what were the chances of that(y) He is one big guy, I wonder how he first got interested in Budgerigars, I remember he made a documentary about his hobby some years ago.
