Wiggins travels to this week's road cycling World Championships in Florence tipped to add the world time trial title to his Olympic success in the event at London 2012.
He will also be a team player in next Sunday's road race where he'll provide a supporting role in Chris Froome's bid to add the rainbow jersey to his maillot jaune at this year's Tour de France.
"My thoughts turn straight to the World Championships and this will be forgotten," said Wiggins, after a successful Tour of Britain for home riders, with Mark Cavendish winning three sprint stages and Sean Yates claiming a historic summit finish in Dartmoor.
"Once I arrive in Italy it's straight out on the bike and focus turns to the time trial.
"It's in the depths of winter that you reflect and it starts to sink in that you've won your home tour in London in front of everybody.
"I've got a job to do Wednesday and then attention turns to Sunday and the road race.
"I rode the Worlds last year but was just making up the numbers so it's nice to come into this year in good form and hopefully I can do a job like two years ago when Cav won.
"Chris is obviously looking to win that, he's the leader. He's the Tour de France winner, he's got a good chance."
Froome started his campaign in Italy by joining forces with Team Sky team-mates, including two-time British Olympic team pursuit gold medallist Geraint Thomas, to take bronze in the team time trial.
And Froome, who will lead the British challenge in Sunday's men's road race, was certainly pleased with the early statement of intent.
"Our objective was to be there or thereabouts," he said. "The win was always going to be hard but we said we'd be happy with a place on the podium. Being 20 seconds off the winning time, we can be happy with that. We did a sold ride."
British shooter and London 2012 Olympian Elena Allen claimed skeet bronze at the shotgun World Championship and then partnered 16-year old Amber Hill, fifth in individual, and Pinky Le Grelle to silver in the team event in Peru.
"What great performances in the women's skeet event by the GB girls," said British Shooting performance manager Tim Newenham.
"For Elena to win bronze is testament to her competitiveness and with Amber Hill aged just 16, finishing fifth in the final, the future looks very positive."
Meanwhile, 15-year-old James Dedman, who only took up shooting four months ago, finished fourth in the men's junior double trap event.
Dedman is coached by Olympic champion Peter Wilson, who has been impressed by his attitude to the sport.
"I see a bit of myself in James," said Wilson. "He's passionate about the sport, he listens well, tries to implement what he's learnt and can shoot a lot of targets because he absorbs the gun's recoil in a natural way."
Elsewhere, Yana Stadnik, the only British competitor at the wrestling World Championships in Hungary, lost her second round bout.
Stadnik, who became a British citizen after London 2012, finished fifth at the event four years ago and is a European silver medallist but lost 11-4 to Poland's Anna Lukasiak.
With rugby sevens making its debut in Rio, Simon Amor has been appointed head coach of the English team that finished second at the World Cup in Russia earlier this year.
Amor, 34, left his post as director of rugby at London Scottish to take over from Ben Ryan and is targeting next year's Commonwealth Games, having won silver at the event as a player in 2006.
