Watch Wiggins’ quest for elusive Triple Crown



With the Tour de France in the bag, Bradley Wiggins is going full force for the Giro d’Italia in a bid to get closer to Eddy Merkcx, Jacques Anquetil, Felice Gimondi, Bernard Hinault and Alberto Contador, the only men to have achieved cycling’s Triple Crown, winning all three grand tours.

For the first time in more than seven years South African viewers will be able to watch the Giro as SuperSport will broadcast all the stages from next weekend.

Having confirmed as early as January that he won’t be defending his Tour de France title, opting to support teammate Chris Froome’s bid for a first Tour title, Wiggins will be able to have a full-frontal assault on the 96th running of the Giro d’Italia.

His support role in France could mean that he might be in peak condition by August to mount a serious challenge on the Vuelta a España as well.
