Wiggins keeps making plans

November 5, 2012 10:22 am

With a Tour de France victory and Olympic gold against his name in 2012, Bradley Wiggins is looking to fulfil further ambitions in cycling next year.

As if ending the sport's most famous race in the yellow jersey was not enough, he went on to top the podium in the time trial at the London Games - and Wiggins is already looking ahead to his next challenge.

"I've already started training for next year because it is about doing it all over again," he said.

"I think initially you think there is nothing else to do. In a sporting sense I'm 32 now and I went from the Champs-Elysees in Paris and winning the Tour de France to winning the Olympic time-trial in London. That is never going to happen to anyone again, perhaps in my lifetime.

"I still don't think that it's fully sunk in to be honest how incredible those two weeks at the Olympics were.

"It was probably the best time of my life in terms of a sporting sense.

"From now on it's just trying to achieve other things - things that I hold close to my heart like Paris-Roubaix, the Giro d'Italia or maybe even trying to win the Tour again."
