Wiggins out of the Tour de France

Big disappointment, a major high drama showdown between Big Wig and Froome was brewing.

Wiggins said it was a “huge disappointment not to make the Tour.”

“I desperately wanted be there, for the team and for all the fans along the way — but it’s not going to happen,” Wiggins said. “I can’t train the way I need to train and I’m not going to be ready. Once you accept that, it’s almost a relief not having to worry about the injury and the race against time.
