Wiggins hints at not retiring after 2016

by CyclingTips

During remarks following the final race of the London Six Day event, which was supposed to be Bradley Wiggins’ final British race as a professional, he remarked that he could be persuaded to keep on racing in 2017.

“I’ve enjoyed it that much, I just don’t know at the moment,” he said following a comment that “money talks.”

“I’d love to still be part of it in the future. I still love riding my bike, I love racing. Who wouldn’t want to come back, with a week like this and the crowds like this? It’s been incredible.”

Wiggins and teammate Mark Cavendish finished second in the series and are set to race the Ghent Six Day event which is billed as Wiggins’ final pro race.

He had declined to speak with the media during the entire event, likely due to the controversy embroiling him and Team Sky at the moment.
