Sir Bradley Wiggins CBE was in Newry today where he visited local cycling shop ‘Green Bikes’ on the old Warrenpoint Road, however one of the world’s most successful riders was told to ‘Fuck Off’ by the owner Conor Campbell.
Wiggins who was on a ‘fact finding’ mission to the Newry area as well as other border regions thought it would be a ‘nice gesture’ to call in on the small business.
However, one shocked onlooker told Newry Spud:
“We all know Conor is a bit of a miserable oul bollox but how could he turn away one of the most eminent sportsmen of this century? It has left a sour taste in the mouth of a lot of cycling purists.”
Meanwhile Mr Campbell told us:
“I was busy and this dick Wiggins came swooning in like he owned the place or something.”
