Sir Bradley Wiggins to ride Tour of Britain alongside Team Wiggins and Olympic teammate Owain Doull.

Sir Bradley Wiggins has confirmed that he will be riding the Tour of Britain, due to start in Glasgow on 4th September. Joining Wiggins will be his teammate from both the Olympic team pursuit squad and Team Wiggins, Owain Doull, who has recently signed to ride with Team Sky next year. 

Doull was third overall in the 2015 Tour of Britain, and won the Chain Reaction Cycles points jersey, meanwhile Wiggins won the overall in 2013, and will be riding his ninth Tour of Britain since it re-launched in 2004. 

'We are delighted to be welcoming two of our Olympic Champions to the Tour of Britain just three weeks after their success in Rio,' said race director Mick Bennett. 

'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.'
