I was saying about the 2012 Amstel since that was a scenario that Wiggins could try.

While mostly true, he did finish 25th in Paris Roubaix. That definitely shows he can go 200+ km

In the Olympic RR he did 50 kms of chasing in total, yet he still managed to only lose about half a minute on the peloton.
He still has to show he can compete for the win in classics, but he should have the required endurance.
