Big disappointment, a major high drama showdown between Big Wig and Froome was brewing.
“With illness, injury and treatment Brad has gone past the point where he can be ready for the Tour,” Sky boss Dave Brailsford said in a team statement. “It’s a big loss but, given these circumstances, we won’t consider him for selection.”
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.
