Sir Bradley Wiggins believes the Great Britain squad can break the world record in the team pursuit at the Track World Championships this week, if the conditions inside the London Velodrome are right.

The Tour de France winner is aiming to win a career fifth Olympic gold medal in Rio in the team pursuit, and believes the GB squad (made up of Wiggins, Owain Doull, Andy Tennant, Steven Burke, Ed Clancy and Jon Dibben) is capable of breaking the 3.51.369 time set by the Great Britain team in 2012 at the London Olympics.
