It's a well-known fact that if Sir Bradley Wiggins pursues some goal, his tremendous determination and commitment usually allow him to achieve it. Another Olympic gold in track cycling is expected to be the ultimate objective of his impressive career as a professional rider, and so the Briton focuses mainly on his preparations at the velodrome. It doesn't mean that cycling enthusiasts won't get to see him performing on the road, though, as he takes part in Challenge Mallorca and Dubai Tour before returning to London for the UCI Track World Championships.


“Mallorca is the first race since the Tour of Britain for Bradley. It’s a good starter for him, his season and it’s the next step for him in developing a good base in preparation for the World Championships,” his track coach, Heiko Salzwedel told Cyclingnews.


Wiggins' first participation is a road race since last year's Tour of Britain already took place, as he sported the Great Britain's national jersey in the Trofeo Felanitx-Ses Salines-Campos-Porreres on Thursday. Crossing the finish line on 135th position cannot be considered impressive, but it was made absolutely clear that the 35-year old rider would line-up in these events without any pressure on achieving particular results, only to fine tune his disposition prior to the Track World Championships in March.


It's yet to be decided whether Wiggins will take part in all four races held in Mallorca, or sign off earlier to take a little breather before leading his own squad in Dubai Tour. It's already known, though, that mentioned events would be his sole appearances on the road before showing up at the velodrome in London.


“As this is his first race since the Tour of Britain expectations are not too high. We want to use the Challenge Mallorca as a way of building up to the Worlds and we fly straight from here to the Dubai Tour on Sunday, where he will race with the WIGGINS team. This is all about giving him a good block of road racing, which is just what he needs in preparation for the Worlds.”


Salzwedel also suggests it's possible that Wiggins will team up with Mark Cavendish to represent Great Britain in Madison at the Track World Championships, but the final selection is yet to be made.
