Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish line up for Tour of Britain

Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish

Britain’s first ever Tour de France winner, Bradley Wiggins, will ride The Tour of Britain this September, giving British fans the chance to see him just under two months since he clinched his historic victory in Paris and only a month since Olympic Gold in Surrey.

Joining Wiggins in Team Sky’s line-up for The Tour is Mark Cavendish, a double-stage winner in last year’s Tour of Britain and the current World Champion on the road.  In 2011 Cavendish set his own piece of Tour de France history, becoming the first British rider to win the Green Jersey.

The Tour of Britain comes towards the end of Wiggins’ best ever season, having clinched overall victories in Paris Nice, the Tour de Romandie and the Criterium Dauphine stage races, before winning the Tour de France and Olympic Time Trial Gold on home roads.

Wiggins will become the first winner of the Tour de France to race in The Tour of Britain, while for the second successive September the reigning World Road Race Champion will line-up for The Tour of Britain, thanks to Cavendish’s participation.
