It’s finally official – Sir Bradley Wiggins has signed a contract extension with Team Sky until 30th April 2015, after which he will concentrate on the track and the Rio Olympics. Funny, in the announcement on the BBC Sport website, it says nothing about his plans for riding with Team Wiggins, which has just been granted a Pro Continental licence. Time will tell on that one.
This could be an ultimate win for him. Coming here as a grand Tour winner? That’s bragging rights for you.
But for now, it’s all about Paris-Roubaix for the 2012 Tour de France champion. But what will he have to do to get on that podium? Rouleur‘s online journal has just posted an interview with Roger Hammond, the British rider who placed third in the 2004 edition. He has some interesting points – first of all, beware the Tom and Fabian show. Indeed.
