London, May 31 (EFE).- British cyclist Bradley Wiggins, winner of the 2012 Tour de France, will not defend his title in this year's race due to an "ongoing knee condition," his Team Sky said Friday.
"With illness, injury and treatment Brad has gone past the point where he can be ready for the Tour," team principal Dave Brailsford said. "It's a big loss but, given these circumstances, we won't consider him for selection."
Cycling's most prestigious race begins June 29.
