LOL. Thanks for the article. This reads to me as 'brilliant' move by wiggins announcing that he is definitely not selected. Again, wiggins is using the public to support for his cause. Brilliant! Now Brailsford has to come out and say something about it. The problem with his statement about team harmony between the riders and staffs can be read as 'wiggins is a pain in the a-ss'. so no way he create harmony within the rider and the staff. Wiggins got the form to back it up this year, the only thing that he doesn't have is" he is not the harmony puzzle piece." Otherwise, Brailsford would have said, brad in on form and would be a good asset to help Froome .. bla, bla, bla. By saying he hasn't chosen the team and depends on team harmony, he is basically delaying to say that wiggins is not going to be on TDF team. I remembered way back, he said that the form and performance were the reason to get selected to the team. Now seems like that wasn't the case, coz wiggins got his form back this year.
Even though I feel sorry for Wiggins, the fact the matters is he likes to stir up things using media. Since he is the former TDF winner, every news outlet will take whatever comment he said. If he doesn't win TDF few years back, no one will care about what he said. From Brailsford points of view, he is kinda a PR headache to deal with and for team perspective, he is kinda a distraction that they don't need.
Nonetheless, as I predicted before whether wiggins make the TDF team or not, it doesn't matter, sky will continue to be a soap opera as long as wiggins and Froome are in the same team. Brailsford just needs to choose which one is the lesser evil.
I'm surprise Michelle doesn't go on rampage on her twitter already. That woman usually have a loose mouth about everything and a PR loose canon. Now she clamped tight? Interesting!
