Wiggins on Dauphine: 'I've come here to race'

Bradley Wiggins in lead, Criterium du Dauphine 2012, stage one

Bradley Wiggins earned himself another leader's jersey today in the Critérium du Dauphiné. This one, at the end of 187km of racing, was stuffed in the back of his team Sky, British Champion jersey when he came to the press conference.

So far, he's been awarded the leader's jersey 12 times this season. It's a burden he thinks about as he aims to win this race and, next month, the Tour de France.
