Bradley Wiggins: Will compete in the Tour of Britain

Bradley Wiggins: Will compete in the Tour of Britain

Tour de France and Olympic time trial champion Bradley Wiggins has announced he will compete in next month's Tour of Britain.

The 32-year-old has been given extra time off by Team Sky following his hugely successful summer and is not participating in the Tour of Denmark next week.

His return to competitive action is now set to come on home soil in the eight-stage event which begins in Ipswich on September 9.

Wiggins made the announcement as he launched the inaugural 'Ride with Brad' mass participation public cycling event in Barnoldswick, Lancashire.

When asked what his next plans were, Wiggins said: "I'm doing the Tour of Britain now. It'll be nice. I'll try to stay fit between now and then so I don't embarrass myself! It'll be good."
