Sir Bradley Wiggins set to make return at Tour of Poland
The Briton missed the Tour de France due to injury
Wednesday 24 July 2013
Sir Bradley Wiggins has been confirmed in Team Sky's squad for the Tour of Poland, which begins on Saturday.
The 33-year-old 2012 Tour de France champion and four-time Olympic champion will make his return to racing at the event, which runs until August 3, it has been confirmed on Team Sky's website.
Wiggins withdrew from May's Giro d'Italia with a knee injury and chest infection which ruled him out of the 100th Tour de France and a possible defence of the yellow jersey, which team-mate Chris Froome inherited in Paris last Sunday.
The Londoner is joined in the Team Sky squad by Britons Luke Rowe and Ben Swift, Colombian duo Sergio Henao and Rigoberto Uran and American Danny Pate.
The first stage takes place in Italy, with Krakow the finish seven days later.
