Bradley Wiggins signs on with Team Sky

Bradley Wiggins has signed for Team Sky under a four-year deal starting with its debut season in 2010.

He brings huge experience from eight years as a professional on the road and has won wide recognition for his Olympic and World Championship achievements on the track.

Brought up in London, the 29-year old is the highest placed British rider ever at the Tour de France – jointly with Robert Millar – after his 4th-place at the 2009 Tour.

Announcing the signing, Dave Brailsford, Team Principal of Team Sky, said; “Brad will be at home in Team Sky. It is the perfect fit and he will be a marquee rider for us.

“He is an exceptional athlete – a great performer at a great age. And he will get better still. At Team Sky he can continue to develop, surrounded by some of the coaches and performance experts who have worked with him for years as part of the British Cycling set-up. With his experience he will help us to develop our great young talents too.

“Brad was a real revelation at this year’s Tour de France, has been hugely successful for British Cycling and his Olympic success has brought wide recognition. His presence will not only help us on the road but with the wider aims of inspiring people to not only follow the team but to get out and ride, whatever their age or ability.”
