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.

British team Sky has called for a press conference to take place tomorrow, and they are expected to announce that Bradley Wiggins has joined the 2010 squad.

After racing for Garmin-Slipstream for a year, Wiggins has announced that he may leave. In September, he told BBC: “It’s like trying to win the Champions League – you need to be at Manchester United, but I’m playing at Wigan at the moment so I have to make that step up.” The signing is set to go down early tomorrow morning, and if all goes as expected, Wiggins will steer the team towards the 2010 Tour de France.

Team Sky has added two new Italian riders to the team, Dario Cioni and Davide Vigano. This makes Sky’s total 2010 squad total out to 24 cyclists. They aren’t stopping there, either; Sky also wants to add Ben Swift to their roster. Swift is currently locked into a contract with Katusha, as a representative says “for us, at this moment, Swift is a Katusha rider.” Team Sky is pleased, however, with its two new signings. “ViganĂ² is a real talent on the brink of an international breakthrough. Team Sky is all about developing and bringing out the best in these kinds of talents and he will benefit hugely from the way we work,” says David Brailsford of Team Sky.
