Former Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins announced on Monday his plan is to compete in road racing one more season before switching back to track cycling.
The 33 year old, bidding to claim a fifth Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Games in Rio, believes there is little chance of him wearing the Yellow Jersey again and will instead look to crown his stellar career with the Great Britain team pursuit squad.
Wiggins, who was unable to defend his 2012 Tour de France title due to injury, has clinched seven Olympic medals in total so far dating back to a bronze in Sydney in 2000.
