(why do the BBC categorise this as 'tennis'? Who knows!) So, Wiggins has decided to quit professional road racing, in order to concentrate on what really matters: the olympic team pursuit (though he admits that it'll be hard for him to even make the team). Makes sense that in his position and at his age he'd want to concentrate on one particular goal - but I'm a little disappointed that it's getting yet another medal on the track. I'd really hoped he might try the classics, and particularly Roubaix. As a bonus, there are some comments in the article about the Tour. He clarifies his reasoning behind abandoning GTs (he's not as good as Froome, plus Froome is young and has no kids, so Froome would be the leader, so to even compete at the Tour for himself he'd have to join a rival team, and he loves Sky too much to ever ride for another team), and explains that his not having congratulated Froome for the Tour victory yet isn't out of anger or hatred, but just because he wanted to do it in person - and besides, he doesn't have Froome's phone number.
