Speaking of teammate Chris Froome, he said, "I don't mind admitting that Chris is probably a better Grand Tour rider than me. He has age on his side, he has no kids. That's fine. If Chris wants to, he could potentially win five tours now."
Wiggins is setting his sights on a return to the velodrome at Rio 2016, telling the newspaper, "I'm going to continue to the next Olympics and try for a fifth gold on the track, that's the plan".
"It would be nice to finish the career with another Olympic gold," he added.
Overall we are satisfied with the outcome. While disappointed with the award for swimming, we recognise we need to rebuild confidence that we can deliver medals at Olympic level consistently before we can demand more investment.
We had a disappointing Olympics in swimming and we now need to focus our energies on driving the cultural change needed moving forward and this will be built around a no compromise approach underpinned by performance management and strong effective leadership.
UK Sport has announced a record pot of £347m of Olympic and Paralympic sports funding to be distributed in the run-up to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games
Cycling, rowing, boxing, athletics and gymnastics have been given increases, but several sports, including swimming, basketball, volleyball and handball, are paying the price for missing medal targets with severe cuts to their income.
Swimming funding has been cut to £21.4m from £25.1m, volleyball (down to £400,000 from £3.5m), plus basketball, handball, wrestling and table tennis, which miss out on funding altogether.
