Wiggins hints at Vuelta return

Post by peggy1258 on Mon Jul 18, 2011 12:58 am

Bradley Wiggins says he could ride the Vuelta a Espana to prepare for September's World Championships road time-trial.

The Team Sky rider was caught up in a collision in the seventh stage of the Tour de France last week and he underwent surgery to have plates inserted to support his collarbone on Monday.

In the immediate aftermath of the crash, Team Sky's Sean Yates suggested Wiggins should ride the Vuelta, which begins in Benidorm on August 20.

Wiggins thinks that idea could work and he is prepared to miss the Tour of Britain and the British time-trial Championships to be in the best possible shape for his bid to win the rainbow jersey in Copenhagen.

Wiggins said on Twitter: "All focus on WorldsTT now as the big one for the end of the season with most likely prep being the Vuelta which will be a first for me.

"Only downside being will miss Nat TT and TOB!! but something has to give as hadn't planned on crashing out of TDF."
