Bradley Wiggins is apparently on Sky’s list to compete in the Tour de France. According to Team Sky’s director Kurt-Asle Arvesen, “…if Wiggins is selected, he will be working for defending champion Chris Froome.”
“Bradley is definitely back in good form,” Arvesen said. “Most of the guys on our team want to be apart of the Tour team. Bradley, won it two years ago, it starts in the UK this year, of course it will be a good thing for us to have him there. Right now, our Tour de France longlist is about 14 or 15 guys.”
Wiggins, if selected, will be providing a direct support role to current champ Froome in the GC ” if he wants to go, if he’s selected and if he’s in good form.”
Wiggins finished ninth at Paris-Roubaix and is currently leading the Tour of California after four stages. He is also the bookies favourite to win the Cali tour, and he is wearing the gold jersey after dominating the Stage 2 Time Trial by 44 seconds and currently leads ahead of Garmin-Sharp’s Rohan Dennie by 28.
We hope to see a partnership between Froome and Wiggo this year, two quality riders, riding in a quality race.
