WARSAW - Britain’s Bradley Wiggins, winner of the 2012 Tour de France, returns to action this weekend in the Tour of Poland, after a season hit by injury and illness. The 33-year-old, who is also the reigning Olympic time-trial champion, was forced to sit out this year’s edition of the Tour de France, which was won by his Team Sky team-mate and compatriot Chris Froome. This year’s Tour of Poland begins with two opening stages in the mountains of northern Italy, with the remaining five in Poland, including a final stage time-trial in the southern city of Krakow. Wiggins has not raced since he was forced to abandon the Giro d’Italia through illness on May 17 but Team Sky boss Dave Brailsford said this week he was “very, very motivated” for his return to action.–AFP
