Bradley Wiggins, Tour of Murcia 2010, stage 4

Bradley Wiggins looks set for his first podium finish in Sky colours after a third place in Saturday's decisive time trial of the Tour of Murcia saw the Briton move up to third overall.

Wiggins finished the flat 22 kilometre time trial in Alhama de Murcia 48 seconds slower than Czech Frantisek Rabon (HTC-Columbia), the winner of the same stage last year and who is now the new overall leader. Denis Menchov (Rabobank), victorious in the Giro in 2009 and the Vuelta in 2008 and 2005, was second.
