Wiggins: It was the honourable thing to do
Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins tells ITV's Ned Boulting about his decision to not take advantage of Cadel Evans' multiple punctures caused by tacks on the road.
Many riders suffered with bike problems after sharp tacks were strewn across the road at the top of a climb, with last year's Yellow Jersey winner having to stop three times.
Due to the issues the current leader of Tour de France 2012 decided to slow down the race to allow those affected to catch up.
"I just thought it was the honourable thing to do as no one wants to benefit from someone's misfortune," Wiggins explained. "One or two guys were adamant on racing even though Cadel was behind."
