Bradley Wiggins in action in Volta a Catalunya

Bradley Wiggins, Trofeo Alcudia 2013, Majorca

Sir Bradley Wiggins takes to the start line of the Volta a Catalunya today (Monday, March 18) as he warms-up for an assault on the Giro d'Italia in May.

It's Wiggins second stage race outing in 2013 after he rode in the Tour of Oman in February. That particular race didn't go to plan for Wiggins after he was caught up in a late crash on the opening stage but was not awarded the same time as the stage winner. He ultimately finished the race in 74th place overall after helping team-mate Chris Froome to victory.
