(REUTERS) - Olympic champion and 2012 Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins says he intends to ride at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later this year.

"I haven't got a gold medal from the Commonwealths so it would be nice to add that on, and it's a couple of days after the Tour so for the sake of carrying on for a few more days and doing it," the 33-year-old Team Sky rider told Cycling News.

"I forgot about the Commonwealths, I'm glad you reminded me actually because I've got to fill a form in otherwise I can't ride it."

The 2014 Tour finishes on July 27, four days before the individual time trial at the Commonwealth Games.
