Wiggins off the road. The inside track ... Commonwealth Games

Chorley cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins is in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games but won't be seen on the road this time.

The action starts tomorrow and will see Sir Bradley return inside to the Velodrome cycle track.

The 2012 Tour de France winner says he needs to concentrate on the team pursuit because that's what he'll be chasing in 2016 at the Olympics in Rio.

Chorley's Sir Bradley Wiggins has confirmed he will miss the 2014 Tour de France.

Team Sky are expected to announce later today their nine-man team for the race, which starts in Leeds on 5 July.

Speaking after winning the British time-trial championship, 34-year-old Wiggins said he will not be competing in the race he won two years ago.

"It's disappointing on a personal level, but I think from a team point of view they've probably put the strongest squad up as it stands," he said.
