Bradley Wiggins expects to stay at Team Sky

Bradley Wiggins expects to stay with Sky, despite losing his place as the team's Tour de France leader to fellow Brit Chris Froome.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Wiggins' future at Team Sky has been in doubt since he was omitted from the roster for the Tour de France, with early reports linking the 2012 champion to Garmin-Sharp next year.

The 34-year-old - a gold medallist at the London Games - also expressed his intention to quit road cycling in July in an attempt to focus on the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

However, speaking ahead of his Tour of Britain defence, which starts in Liverpool on Sunday, Wiggins said he was not looking to leave Sky.

"I think you would have heard in the press by now if I were leaving Team Sky," said Wiggins.

"I'm just trying to structure how it will work. I never really wanted to leave this team. I'd never feel comfortable anywhere else. So I would always endeavour to try and stay here.

"Obviously there is a lot of talk. We're just trying to iron out the details."
