Bradley Wiggins has said that he wants to defend his Tour de France title in 2013. He won this year's race ahead of Sky team-mate Chris Froome, but has previously said that he wants to aim for Giro d'Italia's pink jersey in May, which would leave Froome to race for the yellow jersey.

"I don't know what the situation is in terms of leadership, as it stands I'm probably going to try and win a second Tour de France," he told BBC Radio Five Live.
