Tour de France 2012 winner Bradley Wiggins, sidelined from this year's edition through injury, has indicated he may not try to win the race again.

Wiggins told Britain's The Guardian newspaper that it was always about winning the Tour and now he's done that he's not sure he's prepared to make those sacrifices again.

Wiggins, who was Britain's first-ever winner of the famous race, followed up with gold in the Olympic time-trial and played a starring role ringing a bell to signal the start of the Games' opening ceremony.

He also won the BBC's prestigious Sports Personality of the Year award, but has endured mixed fortunes on the bike since then mainly through illness and injury.

Wiggins says he has other goals that he'd like to achieve.
