Bradley Wiggins' first challenge in this Sunday's Paris-Roubaix will be riding alongside the favourites. If he makes that first step, only then can he think about winning.

"To be honest, it'd be nice to be in their company in the final," Wiggins said ahead of Scheldeprijs today. "That's going to be my biggest challenge, to be in a position to be with those guys. That alone will be quite something. Thoughts of how to beat them haven't even entered my mind because it'll be a big honour just to be with those guys in that position."
