BRADLEY WIGGINS has revealed he is planning to make a documentary about his “scary” and “sinister” Jiffygate ordeal – after being accused of “crossing an ethical line” by Parliament.
The former Team Sky star and 2012 Tour de France winner was speaking on ITV’s coverage of this year’s race as a guest analyser.
And he laid into those who made his life hell after being accused of breaking the rules, while he has always protested his innocence.
He said: “There are things that have come to light with this whole thing that we’ve found out since that are quite scary actually and it’s very sinister.
“We’re still not at the bottom of it, we’re finding new stuff out daily to do with the package that never was and all this stuff and it’s quite frightening actually.
“We’re still working on it, still trying to piece it all together. Not a legal team, just other people coming to us now and saying ‘you know this has happened, don’t you?’

“We can debate TUEs and that’s one thing, but where it went after that with everything else – there is a film to be made there.
“God yeah, I’d love it to all come out. Once it’s all stacked up and pieced together, it’s quite shocking.
“There are a few people bricking it at the moment, I know that for sure. I hope it comes out of its own accord but it is in certain people’s interest for it not to come out and get buried.
“Rather than doing what was done to me, sources and that sort of thing, piece it all together and get the facts right and we’ll make documentary.”
Wiggins, 38, has also backed former Sky team-mate Chris Froome after his fellow Tour winner went through a similar ordeal over his adverse analytical finding, which was overturned.
He added: “One thing I have learned to keep an open mind, and there are two sides to every story and the story you get presented with is grossly fabricated or not true, that’s one thing I have learnt.
“Hence why I’ve been so open minded about this Chris Froome thing.
“Personal problems aside, and what people thing went on between me and him, I’ve got enough of a brain to think ‘actually I’ve not heard it from him yet’.
“And it’s so one-sided and so weighted and there’s so much noise out there, it’s so difficult to get to the bottom of the facts.
“I was reading all this stuff about Chris and taking these puffs of the Salbutamol, he did and he’s allowed to and he seems to have proved that obviously it was naturally occurring, but it’s become a bit of a mess.
“And also a bit facetious in places, people suggesting ‘how can you be an elite athlete and asthmatic?’
“It’s a genuine thing, this exercise induced asthma, riding up mountains, heart rate at 190bpm, pollen, all sorts of things it’s making a bit of a mockery of people’s problems, this whole last two years.”
