Yesterday, we brought you the word that fourth-place Tour de France rider Bradley Wiggins may be signing to team Sky, the UK’s first ProTour team. Today, we now know its official. He had one year left on his contract with Garmin-Transitions, but team Sky bought them out with the help of sponsorship from Rupert Murdoch’s British satellite TV network. “It has been an amazing year for me and my ride at the Tour has given me the drive to aim even higher. I know I can continue to develop and Team Sky is the perfect place to make that happen,” Wiggins says. The 29-year-old held a press conference at Sky TV Studios in London to announce that he had signed a four-year deal with Britain’s first ProTour team.
