Tour of Britain: Wiggins & Doull to Race

As expected, Sir Bradley Wiggins will ride the Tour of Britain with teammates Owain Doull and Jon Dibben. The 2012 Tour de France champion, who recently won his eighth Olympic medal as he took Gold in the Team Pursuit in Rio for Great Britain alongside Doull, will ride in Britain’s biggest professional cycle race for his own Team WIGGINS.

Alongside him will be Doull, who finished third overall in the Tour of Britain in 2015 and won the Chain Reaction Cycles Points Jersey. The 23-year-old Welshman put in a stunningly consistent performance last September to finish in the top 10 on all bar one stage, helping him to an overall podium and top Brit.

Joining Wiggins and Doull will be 22-year-old World Track Champion Jon Dibben who will be riding his third Tour of Britain and is currently flying high in the Tour de l’Avenir in France. The remaining three riders in the Team WIGGINS line-up will be confirmed closer to the race.

2016 will be the ninth edition of the modern Tour of Britain ridden by Sir Bradley Wiggins, with the five time Olympic Champion having ridden in the past four editions. The World Hour Record holder won the 2013 Tour of Britain overall, and finished third in 2014 when he won the final stage time trial in central London.
