Wiggins might yet defend Tour de France title

The Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins is likely to defend his title after all next year despite previously nominating the Giro d'Italia as his main objective for 2013.

The 32-year-old, who became the first British winner of the Tour last year, says he and his Sky team have been resetting their goals, which include the Tour de France, but Wiggins has hinted that he might switch roles and support his younger team-mate Chris Froome, who was runner-up last year.
