The team principal of the Sky cycling team has said that Sir Bradley Wiggins will not lead the team at this year's Tour De France. Even though the Londoner won the Tour last year, Sir Dave Brailsford said his team-mate Chris Froome would lead the team instead.
That means Wiggins will be expected to support Froome throughout the race - a role that Froome did for Wiggins last year.
Brailsford told Teamsky.com: “As always the team selection is a management decision and it will be evidence-based. However it is crucial there is clarity of purpose and for that reason we will go to the Tour with one leader.
"Taking that into consideration and given Chris’ step up in performances this year, our plan, as it has been since January is to have him lead the Tour de France team."
