Team Sky boss: Olympics take priority over Tour

Team Sky boss: Olympics take priority over Tour

The manager of Team Sky who also heads British cycling says his priority next year will be the London Olympics rather than the Tour de France.
Dave Brailsford says working with British riders at the Tour de France, including Bradley Wiggins, will put him in "an advantageous position" to prepare them for the Olympics.
Describing the Olympics as "a unique one-off home event," Brailsford says "if there is ever a question of prioritization we are all prioritizing London 2012."
Brailsford says some Olympians are set to use the 2012 Tour as preparation for the London Games.
The British team won seven gold medals in track cycling at the 2008 Beijing Games.
