Four-time gold medal cyclist Bradley Wiggins, 32, isn’t sure if he’ll stick around for Rio after becoming the first man to win the Tour de France and Olympic gold in the same summer.
“We’ll see – it’s a long way away,” Wiggins told Sky Sports Tuesday. “We tend to work in very short blocks and get the most out of those blocks, and then as you come towards the end of that block you decide what you want to do for the next period, however long that is – one or two years.”
Wiggins, who joined Sir Chris Hoy as Great Britain’s most decorated Olympian in London this summer, added that he’s focused on 2013 and possibly defending his TdF title for now.
Of course, he claims he’s also happily take a backseat, albeit not literally, to one of his Team Sky mates after his accomplishments this summer.
“It could be any one of us – it may be Chris Froome on the day, it may be me. You just don’t know in this sport, and we’re six months away from that decision being made.”
