Sir Bradley Wiggins and Owain Doull ride in in the Tour of Britain

Sir Bradley Wiggins has confirmed his participation in the Tour of Britain.

He will ride alongside alongside Team WIGGINS team-mates Owain Doull and Jonathan Dibben in the event, which gets under way on September 4.
The 2012 Tour de France champion, who recently won his eighth Olympic medal as he took gold in the Team Pursuit in Rio for Great Britain alongside Doull, will ride in Britain’s biggest professional cycle race for his own Team WIGGINS.
Doull finished third overall in the Tour of Britain in 2015 and won the Chain Reaction Cycles Points Jersey. 

The 23-year-old Welshman put in a stunningly consistent performance last September to finish in the top ten on all bar one stage, helping him to an overall podium and top Brit.
Joining Wiggins and Doull will be 22-year-old Jonathan Dibben who will be riding his third Tour of Britain.

The remaining three riders in the Team WIGGINS line-up will be confirmed closer to the race.
2016 will be the ninth edition of the modern Tour of Britain ridden by Sir Bradley Wiggins, with the five time Olympic Champion having ridden in the past four editions.

The World Hour Record holder won the 2013 Tour of Britain overall, and finished third in 2014 when he won the final stage time trial in central London.
Mick Bennett, Tour of Britain Race Director said: “We are delighted to be welcoming two of our Olympic Champions to the Tour of Britain just three weeks after their success in Rio.
“As a former winner of the Tour of Britain it is always a pleasure to welcome Sir Bradley Wiggins back to Britain’s biggest race, while Owain Doull was the star of the 2015 Tour, showing he has a very bright future ahead of him.”
