So on this day we, as a nation, decide whether we leave the EU or to stay let's go back to a much happier time where we were united in London, not just the UK bit Europe and the World for the London Olympics 2012! Im @TimBonvilleGinn to take you through Sir Bradley Wiggins' Individual Time Trial gold medal

On the 1st of August 2012 Bradley Wiggins set off as the penultimate rider on the 44km (27.3mi) course Chris Froome had gone before him with just Fabian Cancellara remaining

Wiggo was one of the big big favourites after his incredible dominance in that years Le Tour de France! Where he won both ITT's (not the prologue) and won overall by over 2 minutes to teammate Chris Froome

I'm a huge fan of Sir Brad, I know people hate him but he revived British road cycling!

The then current world champion Tony Martin of Germany was tipped to be the huge favourite earlier in the year, but after an injury wrecked season and with him pulling out of Le Tour, it was clear he wasn't at his best!

Froome, Rogers, Evans, Phinney, LL.Sanchez, Chavanel and Pinotti were also up there for the victory

Of course Pinotti took the ITT win at that years Giro, the one that Ryder Hesjendal won and was looking in good shape at his nationals before the tour had started

Fabian Cancellara was tipped as THE favourite as he was defending champion but he had crashed out of the road race a few days prior as he was in the winning break away which was won by Vinokourov of Kazakhstan! The Brits didn't have a great time of that one

Sir Brad won the time trial by 42 seconds over Martin and 1min 8secs over Froome! It was his seventh Olympic medal, 4 of them gold and he passed Sir Steve Redgrave as the most successful Brit

Wiggo said himself - "I don't think my sporting career will ever top this now" "That's it. It will never, never get better than that. Incredible" It's the most emotional ive ever seen him
