Bradley Wiggins could race through the end of 2016 instead of stopping after the 2016 Olympic Games next summer in Rio de Janeiro. It is 'likely' he will continue and race several track events.

The 35-year-old is in Cali, Colombia, preparing for the first World Cup of the season. Afterwards, he will go on to the World Championships and race a handful of road events in 2016.
