Wiggo eyes time-trial gold
HID Olympics 2012,
Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins says he is confident of his chances of claiming gold in Wednesday's Olympic time-trial.
The 32-year-old is currently in stunning form in the 'race of truth' after comfortably winning the two stages against the clock on his way to becoming the first Brit to triumph in Le Grande Boucle. Wiggins has previously won a host of Olympic medals on the track but after claiming both the individual and team pursuit in Beijing four years ago, he decided to switch his focus to the road, a move that has brought about unprecedented success. The 44km route for Wednesday's time-trial looks almost perfect for the Team Sky rider and 'Wiggo' says another gold would be the perfect way to follow his historic win at the Tour. "Confidence is sky high that we're going to be in the ball park," said Wiggins. "Nothing changes really, there is no need to test. The benchmark is there really from Saturday in Chartres [in the Tour de France] so nothing is going to change from that performance to Wednesday. "My performances all year have been consistent so I have no reason to think that is going to change," he added.
