Today saw the release of the New Years Honours List, where The (Other) Boss- Her majesty, bestows honours on The Great and The Good.
One of this years recipients is Bradley Wiggins. The Kid from Kilburn has been Knighted. I can't wait to hear his acceptance. The Queen must be quaking in her boots!
Also receiving a Knighthood is Wiggo's boss Dave Brailsford.
Being made a Dame (Lady Knight) is Sarah Storey, paralympics cyclist and Gold Medal winner, who has also achieved as an able bodied athlete.
Victoria Pendleton is awarded a CBE whilst Jason Kenny and Laura Trott receive OBE's and Joanna Rowsell, Steven Burke, Mark Colbourne, Neil Fachie, Philip Hindes, Peter Kennaugh, Danni King and Craig Maclean each receive an MBE
Having browsed the list, it appears most medal winners at the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games have been recognised, along with some coaches and federation leaders. Our sport of cycling has done well.
