Cycling: Wiggins to return to track after next season for 2016 Olympics tilt
LONDON (REUTERS) - Bradley Wiggins will retire from road racing after one more season before returning to the velodrome with the goal of adding to his gold medal haul at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
"I'm going to continue to the next Olympics and try for a fifth gold," the 33-year-old Briton told The Times newspaper on Monday.
"That's the plan. Having lost weight and muscle the last few years I wouldn't be able to walk back into that team pursuit squad, so I'm not taking anything for granted, but I am working towards that.
"It would be nice to finish the career with another Olympic gold."
