News for Bradley Wiggins fans- The 2012 Tour France champ might use 2015 Giro in May as his prep ground for World Hour record come June.
The news has been reported by Pinarello, the official bike supplier for Team Sky.
The British cycling legend has planned to ride for a handful of selected road racing events for Sky during the initial phase of coming year prior to shifting to his very own soon-to-be-declared road team. Sir Wiggins’ new team is speculated to be his chariot that would be carrying him towards the much anticipated Rio Olympic Games in 2016.
The 34-year-old Olympic gold medalist has got Paris-Roubaix as his top most priority in 2015 spring following which the iconic cyclist would focus on prepping up for World Hour record. He is on this plan to channelize the May cycling Giro Italia as the much needed warm-up just a month before his prime targeted event.
“I am not going to exclude Wiggins from Giro”, stated Fausto Pinarello. “It is simple useless to skirt it, our main goal is the stage of Treviso-Valdobbiadene. We are looking forward to triumph at it & on this particular course, Wiggo is simply untouchable.”
“Wiggins is all set to try out the world hour record in June next year. I am aware that Sky is contemplating on the very idea of taking to Giro since it will be a fantastic base preparation ground & time trial would be best test here for hour record.”
The official bike supplier for Team Sky shared that his firm is now busy developing bikes for Sir Bradley’s hour record endeavor in Treviso based headquarter. However, Team Sky have stressed that they are still undecided on riders’ programmes in the next season.
