No, he might win the Giro next year but that will be difficult enough. If Contador and Andy are back in the TdF and both are 100% then Wiggins won't stand a chance. At the moment I think the only one capable of doing the double is Contador.

But I don't think Wiggins is seriously considering defending his Tour title. He will aim for the Giro and start the Tour to help Froome. His recent statement is just a gesture because he can't say he isn't interested in winning the Tour next year.

Undoubtedly you said that about his chances of winning this year's tour, he won that and a few other races too. Which is great.

Betancur can only do the Giro or Tour not both, so there has to be one left over for Wiggins to win..

wow- so Wiggo wins the Tour "under a very unique set of circumstances" & suddenly he's taking about doing the double?

either at Sky they're foolishly overconfidence about their "programme" or Wiggo is back on drinking....

Wiggins says he is in better shape than last year at this point in time. Considering 2010 I dont know how far to trust him. It is good to see him drinking and enjoying himself on his week break from training in Mallorca..

You shouldn't be drinking that much anymore this late in your preparation. From all the news stories I've heard he hasn't done much training either. Was also out for quite some time because of that car accident.

It's great when you're wrong more than once in a post.

Don't come complaining when Wiggo doesn't perform as good anymore as 2012.

He's in better shape from what exactly? Smoking all the marginal gains?
