Wiggins takes another title
Bradley Wiggins continued his impressive form on Sunday by winning the final stage time-trial to claim the Tour de Romandie.
The Team Sky rider had led the race earlier in the week after winning the opening stage but started the day second in the general classification after Spaniard Luis Leon Sanchez had claimed consecutive victories on Friday and Saturday. However, despite a mechanical problem early in his run, Wiggins powered to victory, finishing just ahead of Andrew Talansky to claim his second stage of the race and take the yellow jersey. The win confirms the Brit as one of the favourites for this year's Tour de France, following his Paris-Nice victory in March, and his impressive performance will certainly send out a message to his rivals. Wiggins, who turns 32 on Saturday was understandably delighted to claim yet another prestigious title and says its testament to the hard work he put in during the winter. "I think [this year] is a result of the hard work I've put in this winter," he said. "I've really grafted at it and hopefully there's more to come."
