Former Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins backed his former team boss Dave Brailsford after Team Ineos manager left Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas of the Tour Ineos squad.The British team will base their 2020 challenge around defending champion Egan Bernal after controversially deciding to leave Froome and Thomas at home after the two riders were staggered during the recent Critérium du Dauphiné. Thomas will now aim for the Giro d’Italia, while Froome will drive the Vuelta a España.

Thomas won the 2018 Tour de France and finished second a year later, while Froome won four rounds and was aiming for a record-breaking fifth title after returning from a terrible crash in 2019.
