Tour de France - Wiggins likely to attempt Tour defence

Bradley Wiggins will "probably" attempt to retain the Tour de France next year, contrary to previous reports.

"As it stands, I'm probably going to try and win a second Tour de France, so I don't know, maybe we'll have two leaders (with Chris Froome)," the Team Sky rider, who became the first Briton to win the race, told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"We are resetting the goals, trying to win a second Tour de France, but you cannot replicate those circumstances. I accept that and am quite happy with that as you cannot have too many moments like that in your career," added Wiggins, the Olympic time trial gold medallist.

The 32-year-old had previously hinted he may play a supporting role to Froome in the 2013 Tour as the route, which has four mountain-top finishes and only 65km of individual time trialling, is expected to suit his team-mate better.

Froome, 27, finished runner up to Wiggins this year.
