The Tour of Britain is to kick start next month and the newly crowned Olympic team pursuit gold medalist from Great Britain Bradley Wiggins has confirmed his participation.
This will be the first road race that Wiggins will participate in 4 months. This will also be his first race that he will take part in after winning the gold medal at Rio Olympics. He will be joining Mark Cavendish for the Tour of Britain week long race. His gold medal partner Owain Doull will also be in the starting lineup of this most anticipated race.
Tour of Britain race director, Mick Bennett, said that he is very happy that the two Olympic Champions are taking part in the week long race just after their successful Rio Olympics. It gives him immense pleasure to welcome Sir Bradley Wiggins to the biggest race in Britain. Bradley is also the former winner of this prestigious Britain race. Owain Doull has also proved his mettle by turning out to be the star of the show in 2015. He will be starting the Tour of Britain race for the eighth time in his career.
