Bradley Wiggins has said that he wants to win the Paris-Roubaix in the 2015 season and he’s not competing in the Track Cycling World Cup that is currently being held at London so that he can prepare for his last road races which he’ll ride for the British team Sky.
Bradley Wiggins, who became the winner in time trial category in the 2014 UCI World Championship held in Ponferrada, Spain, hasn’t trained with the British team after the Commonwealth Games and is training for Paris-Roubaix instead.
The race is also called Hell of the North and it is going to be held in the month of April next year. Bradley Wiggins will try to attempt Hour Record after riding in Paris-Roubaix. Wiggins has said earlier that he would like to compete in the 2014 World Cup to be held in London but instead of participating in it he has chosen to train for the Paris-Roubaix.
Bradley Wiggins became winner of the 2012 edition of Tour de France. On second December, he has shared a picture of his training on the cobbles of Roubaix in Instagram. As Wiggins hasn’t been riding on the track for quite some time now, it is unlikely that he’ll be included in Britain’s National Team that will compete in the next year’s World Championships which will be held in Saint Quentin en Yvelines in the month of February. Wiggins won’t have to score a certain number of points to be able to ride in the 2015 world championships but it is not likely that he’ll be included in the national team. Shane Sutton, technical director of team Sky said that in the London World Champoionships, the team’s main aim was to score enough points to qualify for the Olympics. Wiggins is likely to start building his score to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics from the next year’s winter.
