Five-time Olympic champion cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins says he has shelved plans to bid to make the Great Britain rowing team at the 2020 Olympics.
The 2012 Tour de France winner retired from cycling in December 2016 and flirted with the idea of rowing competitively, taking part in last December's British Rowing Indoor Championships at the Lee Valley Velodrome.
The 38-year-old told his eponymous Eurosport show: "I'm still training most days with it, but I've decided I'm not going to the Olympics because I've got too much other stuff to do.
"I need to give myself a break. I haven't got time to train three times a day. To the level I want to do it to, it's a full-time job in itself. There's too much going on."
