Cycling-Wiggins to lead Team Sky at Tour of Britain


Sept 5 (Reuters) - Bradley Wiggins will lead a six-man Team Sky squad to compete in the Tour of Britain, which begins on Sept. 15 in Peebles, Scotland.

The 2012 Tour de France champion and multiple Olympic medalist returned from a knee injury at the Tour of Poland five weeks ago and will ride with fellow Brits Ian Stannard and Josh Edmondson, as well as Australia's Mathew Hayman, Spain's David Lopez and Austrian Bernhard Eisel.

"I'm coming into the race feeling really good.

"It finishes in close proximity to the world time trial championships which is my main late-season goal," the 33-year-old said in a statement, referring to the world championships in Florence.

The eight-day race will also feature stages in Wales and England. (Reporting by Josh Reich; edited by Martyn Herman)
