Tour favorite Wiggins jokes about bad memories

Tour favorite Wiggins jokes about bad memories

Being the Tour de France favorite comes with increased media attention, but Bradley Wiggins has seen it all before.
Just not for the same reason.
Surrounded by a scrum of journalists at his Sky team's hotel on the eve of the Tour prologue, Wiggins remembered one of his worst experiences as a cyclist _ getting "chucked off" the 2007 Tour after then-teammate Christian Moreni failed a doping control. The case led Wiggins and his team to pull out of the Tour.
Wiggins is a bookmaker's favorite for the yellow jersey following the Briton's impressive run of wins this season at Paris-Nice, the Tour of Romandie and the Criterium du Dauphine.
A big football fan, Wiggins said winning the Tour would be like winning his own FA Cup.
