London: Former Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins has revealed that his children had to move schools after they were bullied in the wake of the Lance Armstrong drug revelations.
"That (winning the Tour de France) changed everything,"Wiggins told several British newspapers. "I left home pretty much unknown and came home the most famous man in the country for that week.
It was hard for me and the family. It affected them as well. The Lance Armstrong thing in January... my kids started getting harassed at school. 'Is your dad on drugs? He won the Tour. Is he the same as Lance Armstrong?'
"Horrendous stuff. Horrible. My son getting bullied at school. I had to move my kids from that school and move them to another school."
