Wiggins and Cavendish to team up at Six Day London
May 24, 2016 (09:15) [ Indexed from ]
After claiming a memorable Madison title at the Track World Championships earlier this year, Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish will team up once again, returning to the scene of their triumph, at the Six Day London event in October. Cavendish confirmed his participation a couple of months ago but Wiggins was added to the bill on Tuesday to form, as he put it, the double act everyone wants to see. Ever since their ill-fated Madison ride at the 2008 Olympic Games, the careers of two of the biggest personalities in the history of British cycling have entwined themselves, culminating in that feel-good victory in the London Velodrome.Wiggins, who had noted that he and Cavendish had 'conquered the world' in the intervening eight years, said this year's Six Day could be the last time they compete alongside one another.ADVERTISEMENT Its going to be great. This has got to be the double act everyone wants to see isnt it?" said the 36-year-old. "Winning the Madison at the Worlds was incredible and this might well be the last chance that people get to see us together. With the roof having been blown off the Lee Valley VeloPark during the Madison victory in March, Wiggins joked that theyd have to put in some six day appearances " like the old days of Merckx and Sercu. Cavendish, who helped launch the Six Day London last year, revealed that was exactly the idea he had put to his partner. You can read more at More...

May 14, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
The 2016Amgen Tour of California gets underway on Sunday, with a stacked field with 10 WorldTour squads, including some of the best sprinters in the pro peloton. The race's winningest rider and current world champion Peter Sagan returns, looking to pad his record tally of stage wins and follow up on last year's overall victory.. Last year's Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix winner John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin) looks to refind his old form after being hit head-on by a car during the team's January training camp. BradleyWiggins (Team WIGGINS) says his added weight for his track focus ahead of the Rio OlympicGames will rule out a stab at a second overall victory, but he will be a favourite for the Folsom time trial.ADVERTISEMENT Last year's USAPro Challenge winner Rohan Dennis (BMCRacing) is one of the favourites for the overall classification, and will have Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-Quickstep), Andrew Talansky (Cannondale) and Peter Stetina (Trek-Segafredo) as his main rivals. Tom Boonen (Etixx-Quickstep), Peter Kennaugh(Team Sky), Mark Cavendish(Dimension Data), Alexander Kristoff(Katusha), and Bryan Coquard (Direct Energie) will also have their opportunity to shine in the Golden State.

Wiggins boosts Olympic hopes with successful return to track
August 16, 2015 (13:03) [ Indexed from ]
Bradley Wiggins hopes of retiring as the most decorated British Olympian of all time were given a boost on Friday as he made a storming return to the track. At the opening round of the 2015/16 Revolution Series in Derby, the 35-year-old formed part of a Great Britain quartet that rode to victory in the team pursuit in a time of 3 minutes 54.974 seconds. Joined by Steven Burke, Owain Doull and Jon Dibben, Wiggins was doing two-laps turns in the qualifying rounds before Ed Clancy replaced Dibben for the final and the quartet set a time that was just a shade over three seconds shy of the world record.ADVERTISEMENT It will do no harm to Wiggins hopes of lining up in the team pursuit at the Olympic Games in Rio next year, where he would be going for an eighth Olympic medal that would take him past Sir Chris Hoy's tally of seven. Its nice to get up and do a fast time like that, a world class time, on a not so good track. Its good being back with the boys the last few weeks. It took me a while after the Hour Record to realise I wanted to do it again so its good to be back, its a good laugh, thats what its all about, said Wiggins in front of the BBC microphone. All that drivel they were talking about at the end of last year when I was watching the World Cup in London about whether I could still do it or not. You come back here and, its great, I love it, weve got a really good group of guys, which is what you need, you cant do it on your own. Tonight was testament to that. We were looking at the graph just then and it was just flat really and thats what its going to take to win Olympic gold so its really good. You can read more at More...
Wiggins not guaranteed Olympic team pursuit spot, says Sutton
August 04, 2015 (16:00) [ Indexed from ]
Team GB technical director Shane Sutton has said that Sir Bradley Wiggins is not guaranteed a place in Britains team pursuit line-up having rejoined Britains track squad preparing for next years Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. "Do I think Brad can make it? Yes, of course I do. Is it a given? No," Sutton said when asked about Wiggins prospects of gaining selection for the four-man team. "Hes going to have to work for it because Im very confident in the group weve got. Brad coming in has strengthened that group, but it doesnt by any means guarantee him a place." Speaking to Cyclingnews at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester, Sutton described Wiggins as having "all of the tools in the box" required to make the four-man pursuit team and bring the curtain down on his racing career with a fourth Olympic title and record-setting eighth medal for UK athlete. He added that having Wiggins back in the track endurance squad had given everyone a huge lift.ADVERTISEMENT "Brad has slotted back into the team pursuit set-up really well. I think we went through a five-week period when he was asking, Do I want this? Do I need this? But hes put all that to bed and he really wants it. He wants to leave this sport as the greatest [UK] Olympian of all time," said Sutton. He then expanded on the challenge that Wiggins faces as he builds towards gaining selection for the Rio Games in a years time. According to Sutton, as well as very strong competition for places, Wiggins will also need to readjust to the particular demands of the team pursuit. "There are no guarantees that he will get selection for the team pursuit because weve got an incredibly strong squad. Weve got medal experience with Ed [Clancy], Burkey [Steven Burke] and Andy Tennant, who was the fifth member of the squad in London. What they are doing right now is making sure that they will be at their absolute best," said Sutton. You can read more at More...

July 30, 2015 (04:15) [ Indexed from ]
Bradley Wiggins will return to the Prudential RideLondon for the second year, this time bringing his own Team WIGGINS to the race and riding in support of his young, talented teammates. The race holds a special place for Wiggins, who claimed Olympic gold in 2012 in the individual time trial after his Tour de France victory, bringing his Olympic tally to four gold medals. This year, he brings his own developmental squad to the race, and is looking forward to showing off the squad in front of the big crowds between Surrey and London. Our WIGGINS team has had a brilliant response racing around the country, people can see were a bit different and the sheer spectacle of us all riding through London will be amazing," Wiggins said. Prudential RideLondon is a big moment for WIGGINS as a team. Weve got some serious young talent in the shape of Owain Doull and Chris Lawless. Chris is just 19, and finished sixth last week in Belgium riding against Philippe Gilbert and Tom Boonen. It was a fantastic achievement. He was the only British rider to finish the race and is in great form, so keep an eye on him.ADVERTISEMENT Wiggins stepped down from his place in Team Sky after Paris-Roubaix this year, choosing to focus instead on preparing for the Olympic Games in Rio next year. He participated in the Tour de Yorkshire with Team WIGGINS, but eschewed any other road races while preparing to break the UCI Hour Record. He succeeded in setting a new mark on June 7, riding 54.526km. It will be his first road race since the record, and Wiggins is looking forward to seeing the British crowds. For me, its like a reminder of everything thats great about our sport. Im looking forward to just being a part of it and to getting my fitness back up. Ive had some time off after breaking the UCI Hour Record and my main focus now is the Rio Olympics in 2016," he said. You can read more at More...

Team Wiggins' Doull sets long-term sights set on the road
June 27, 2015 (13:30) [ Indexed from ]
Towards the end of last season, Owain Doull was on the verge of a significant step in the course of his fledgling career. The Welshman, then a 21-year-old on the British Cycling Olympic Academy Programme and riding for An Post-ChainReaction, had a deal all but sewn up with Europcar " a WorldTour team at the time. However, he backed out at the last minute and has instead spent 2015 with Team Wiggins, the Continental-level squad set up to help Great Britain team pursuiters on the track to the Rio Olympics next year. For someone who has shown talent both on the tarmac and the boards, it must have been a tough decision to make, but at the halfway stage in the year Doull isnt looking back, and will soon be going full gas for Rio.ADVERTISEMENT I think I did [make the right decision]. Im quite glad I did what I did, going to Team Wiggins, its a really good team, supported me really well and Ive had a really good year so far from the off, he told Cyclingnews during the British Road Championships weekend in Lincolnshire, where he finished second in the under-23 time trial. For the rest of this year, in the summer Ill do predominately more road, and towards the end of the year the Tour of Britain and the U23 Worlds, if Im selected. After that it switches full time to the track and anything I do up to Rio then will be fully geared towards the team pursuit. The road will be just a training tool, I guess. The 22-year-old is still getting to grips with the best way to make the most of his considerable potential. Rio might be the most immediate goal but longer term he sees his future on the road and describes the step up that the Europcar deal represented as still a big ambition. He even hopes the opportunity might present itself as early as next year. You can read more at More...
