Wiggins: I’d Like to Win 2013 Tour
Backtracks from earlier statements
Reigning Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins said this week that he’d like to win the event again in 2013, backtracking from earlier statements that he would focus on the Giro de Italia next season. “As it stands, I’m probably going to try and win a second Tour de France, so I don’t know, maybe we’ll have two leaders. That’s more than likely, I guess,” Wiggins told BBC Radio 5 Live. Wiggins’ ambitions may set him at odds with teammate Chris Froome, whom Wiggins originally said he would support next season. Froome trailed Wiggins by three minutes and 41 seconds in this year’s Tour; some observers say that Froome, a stronger climber, could likely make up much of that difference on next year’s mountainous course.
