Surely it's not an excuse, but a reason he's accepting he's not going to ride for GC anymore? I don't think he's bringing his kids in to portray himself as a victim - he's saying Sky are rightly going to favour Froome because Froome is more willing than Wiggins is to hole himself up on a volcano for months on end and do the hard yards in training. Seems a fair enough decision whichever way you look at it from.
