Sky team doctor Richard Freeman said Bradley Wiggins could not compete in the Tour de France because he needs time to recover from a knee injury:
The chest infection that caused his withdrawal from the Giro has responded to treatment and rest. It has completely cleared up.
However, further medical investigations on the knee injury that we were managing at the Giro showed the condition was more significant than we thought. It’s needed intensive treatment and, whilst it will be fully resolved,
Bradley now needs to rest completely for five days before a gradual, return to full training over a period of two to three weeks.”
