Its looking more than likely that we'll have Bradley Wiggins hanging around the cycling world for a little while yet, with the Englishman saying he may race into 2017.

“I will see how I feel this time next year. There might be other opportunities. They might ask me to present Match of the Day. But if I haven’t got a job by this time next year I will keep racing," Wiggins told The Guardian.

He also laid out a Post Rio 2016 Olympic Games schedule which includes the Tour of Britain with his eponymously named Team Wiggins, followed by six-day races at London and Ghent.

“I’d love to do London, and go to Ghent 17 years after I first rode,” Wiggins said. “It’s another of these little historic things I want to go back and revisit one last time. I want to go there and ride with Iljo Keisse. it’s something we’ve been talking about for 10 years. I want to keep racing until the end of the year rather than stop in Rio. I’ve been loving riding this year, it’s been like a breath of fresh air.”

“I will keep training, I don’t see why I would stop doing that, and I might slip into the odd race that is easy to do, like a player-manager. I don’t know how that will fit into the team’s plans but what I do know is that the team’s moved forward. We’ve got some good young talent for next year.”

If we know anything about humans its that we love to game a system to our advantage, any system. Even a virtual indoor training aid like Zwift, judging by the looks of this Korean clip posted to Facebook. If it's to be believed, these wags used a drill to ramp up their speed to collect a few kudos. Naughty, naughty.

 

Race safety is paramount but the test was failed on this occasion at the Vuelta a Costa Rica when a Taxi decided to hook a left right in front of a fast moving peloton. Thankfully no one was seriously injured despite its ugliness.
