Wiggins: Tour was perfect Olympic TT preparation

Bradley Wiggins on podium, Tour de France 2012, stage 17

Bradley Wiggins goes into Wednesday's London 2012 time trial with 250km of racing in his legs from Sunday, but after the experience of the Tour de France, he's confident he can cope.

"We've just been at Tour for a month, hanging around the podium, standing up, doing press conferences. Some days we had a couple of hours drive in the bus." Wiggins said. "You've got a 250km race and three days to recover on your backside in a nice hotel."
